Hamid Shahi

Founding Partner, Architectural Designer , Unify Design Art in Toronto Canada

I am an architectural designer and mentor from Toronto, Canada, with a passion for collaborating with others. Currently studying Masters of Architecture at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism, Carleton University. I previously earned my Bachelors of Environmental Design at OCAD University.

Through exploring the boundaries between architecture and our existing world, I seek to design innovative, low cost, and sustainable structures for creating positive social change in people’s lives around the world.

Outside of my academic achievements, I have collaborated with major firms and organizations such as Kengo Kuma and Associates, Riken Yamamoto & Field Shop, II BY IV DESIGN, TYYZ, and plus FARM that have inspired me in learning to continue my pursuit of architecture, innovation and design.

Re-Unify through Architecture

BY HAMID SHAHI
@ VOL 149 ON JUL 26, 2017

Canadian architects, Erin and Hamid, have spent many years examining the powerful effect of architecture over local communities and around the world. This PechaKucha night, they have flown all the way across the Pacific ocean to share with us how architecture can unite communities and incite positive social changes!

カナダ人建築家のErin and Hamidさんは長年にわたって、世界各地のコミュニティで建築が地域に与える効果を検証してきました。 今回のPechaKucha Nightでは、彼らは太平洋を越えて、建築がいかにコミュニティを結びつけ、積極的に社会変化を後押しできるかを教えてくださいます!

A Journey Towards Unity

BY HAMID SHAHI
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 01, 2018

After experiencing meeting, interviewing, collaborating, and working with some inspiring individuals in Japan, Hamid Shahi decided to reach out to his friends to initiate a global collaborative community with other amazing creative people who are interested in joining together and contributing to projects in pursuit of a higher purpose.

At Unify Design Art, we believe everyone is creative and we think of designers and artists as people who exhibit the attitude, approach and abilities of forward thinking. We believe that creators around the globe can support and inspire each other to make positive change in their local communities. 

For us it’s not a question of thinking or doing, but what to think about and how to do it through unified systems and strategies.
