Pegah Rahimian received her Bachelor of Architectural Science from Ryerson University and her Masters from the Architectural Association.
Her thesis was focused on the high rise, as the critical feature of the modern urban landscape, and its need to transcend isolation to foster better integration and mobility in the global cities of tomorrow. The paper mostly focused on strategic planning through both design and constructing frameworks/policies to introduce some hierarchy , variation and differentiation in scale and morphology of the block and its relationship to the broader urban fabric.
Pegah’s interests are adaptive reuse, urban design, housing typologies and critical thinking in architectural theory.
At ERA, she has been involved in both small-scale projects such as cottages, and large-scale projects such as the Mirvish Village development.
