NAVID MAQAMI, co-founding principal
Navid Maqami is a cofounder and a design principal of S9 Architecture. His architecture is rooted in "modern contextualism", where sensitivity to contextual forces fuse with the pragmatic needs of a project to develop design narratives blurring lines between architecture, urbanism, landscape and art. With over 30 years of experience, Navid leads teams of talented designers and architects on diverse projects, from large scale mixed-use developments to small interiors. His passion for better design coupled with his expertise analyzing social, economic and regulatory parameters, and working with developers and end users has resulted in an extensive portfolio of award-winning projects including the New York Wheel, Dock72 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Lansdowne Park in Ottawa and 205 Water Street in Dumbo. Navid received his architectural degree from the Architectural Association in London.
