M.Arch, MUD, Architect Registered in Iran
Senior Project Designer
The sweet spot for designer Mahdi Tavanpour is where architecture intersects with urban design. It’s all about the craft of placemaking for Tavanpour. Mahdi received his Master of Architecture from IAUM in Iran in 2008, and a Master of Urban Design from UBC in 2017. He joined CTA in 2018. In his 10 years of working as a designer, he has developed a comprehensive understanding of the process of multidisciplinary developments through working on many urban-scale projects. Master planning and urban renewal projects on a wide range of buildings confirmed his belief that great design prioritizes the human. And that great design also prizes the integration of the building with its surroundings. You can find him admiring the surroundings of the Seawall and Stanley Park atop his bike on his rare days off.
