    Amin Mojtahedi: [draw]

    I was recently shown drawings by SARUP student Amin Mojtahedi, and am delighted that he shared them.

    Amin explains "I draw and I move freely between different architectural compositions, artistic genres, or even research ideas without feeling committed to, competitive with, or critical of a certain style or school of thought. Besides, I think there is a strong correlation between happiness and engagement in some kind of creative work. All this is what makes me enjoy ‘exploring by drawing’ so very much!"

    Amin is a PhD(c), M.Arch, Grad School Fellow, and instructor/TA here in the School of Architecture and Urban Planning. He is also a researcher and designer in Workshop Architects with a focus on the architecture of social learning in higher education environments and workplaces. In addition to his work on the pre-design, programming, design, and evaluation of these places, Amin's publications include writings on: place theories, pattern language, the experience of international students, and social capital on campus.
