As a child growing up in Baku, Azerbaijan, Artour would gaze at the buildings around him and fantasize about creating his own versions of them. That early desire formed his interest in architecture and construction, which then led to him pursuing it professionally. Artour has been in practice since 1988, and has gained diverse experience in a variety of medium and large scale residential, institutional, and transit projects with focus on both design and technical aspects. He’s an award-winning architect with a high degree of technical expertise related to the coordination of large, multi-disciplinary assignments and extensive working knowledge of the buildability assessment and the interaction of all disciplines, from design to construction.
