Join AIA New Hampshire at Keene State College when three generations of design practitioners come together to share design perspectives. The evening will include an open studio, presentation of student work, and a lecture by Canadian architect Omar Gandhi.
Gandhi and his design studio, Omar Gandhi Architect, have garnered much national and international attention in the last eight years. Gandhi most recently served as the Louis I. Kahn visiting Assistant Professor in Architectural Design at the Yale School of Architecture for the fall semester of the 2018-19 academic year.
Omar Gandhi is the recipient of the 2014 Canada Council for the Arts Professional Prix de Rome and was listed in Wallpaper* Magazine’s 2014 Architects Directory – their list of the top 20 Young Architects in the World. Omar was named one of the Architectural League of New York’s ‘Emerging Voices’ of 2016, one of Monocle Magazine’s 20 most influential Canadians and was named one of Architectural Record Magazine’s Design Vanguard for 2018. Most recently the studio was the recipient of the 2018 Governor General’s Medal in Architecture for the cabin at Rabbit Snare Gorge (pictured at the top of this page) – Canada’s highest honour for built projects.
