With seven years of experience working in both landscape architecture and architecture practices in New York City, Bijan approaches every design challenge with a holistic environmental understanding between inside spaces, outside places, and all the interconnecting features that make up the threshold in between. His expertise covers project management from start to finish, with a distinct talent for addressing the technical challenges that come up during design documentation, detailing and construction administration.

A graduate of the Southern California Institute of Architecture, he earned his B.Arch in 2012 and went on to complete his education in Horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden with a Focus in Sustainable Garden Design. Other academic achievements include a study abroad in Japan investigating the use of modular design to weave stronger urban fabrics, the production of a thesis exploring plant-driven architecture, the study of Building Information Modeling at NYU-SPS, and teaching at the NYBG. A licensed architect in the state of New York, Bijan also holds credentials as a LEED AP BD+C and SITES AP.

An avid believer that a better future lies in beautiful landscapes, Bijan aims to bring to life designs that go beyond appealing to our senses to perform in ways that replenish the environment, empower people from every background, and speak to the culture of their context.
