Amin Espandiari

Amin Espandiari, an Architecture Instructor at NewSchool, believes in a design approach that addresses synthetic relations between architectural space and surrounding conditions in order to generate unique user experiences. In his opinion, architecture is about raising questions for our contemporary society rather than being defined by form or object. His teaching methodology is based on a strategy of allowing students to develop their thought process from a variety of different cultures and architectural styles. Amin focuses on expression (concept & idea) and representation (architectural form & model) with coherence between them.

Del Mar Project

Project Description: For me, architecture is about creating spaces that generate all kind of experiences and become long time memories.

With dramatic Pacific Ocean and Torrey Pine Park views, the major concept of designing the space became to maximize the views and creating natural ventilation to minimize the heat exposure during warm seasons.
