Joaquin Perez-Goicoechea and Nasser Abulhasan, Principals & Founders of AGi architects, share their vision of architecture with students from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Virginia Tech in the United States, and the Dalhousie University, in Canada.
The conference entitled “ArchiSystems” is allowing AGi architects to show how the city, society, culture and politics are reflected in the architecture. A selection of projects are being shown such as single-family houses and high-rise buildings built in Kuwait, where the design firm is the leader in this sector, with designs as Secret House, Love Shack, S Cube Chalet, Green Core and Wafra Living; the latest health project recently completed in the Gulf, Ali Mohamed T. Al-Ghanim Clinic; and “La Ascensión del Señor” Church, in Seville (Spain), shortlisted among the nominated projects for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2015, and winner of the World Architecture Festival Award 2014 in the Completed Buildings Religion category.
Through each of these projects Joaquin and Nasser are showing the contemporary architectural systems that are the work basis of AGi architects, design firm established in 2006.
Joaquin and Nasser met in the United States while they were studying the Master in Architecture at Harvard GSD from 2000 to 2002, so coming back there is always a pleasure for them.
