Hossein studied architecture at the famed École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France, where the tenets of correct, moral and ethical architecture were drilled into him until they eventually became part of his DNA. He was taught that architects are not just designers but master builders, as the etymological definition of the term “architect” indicates. He believes, firm adherence to those tenets is vital to every project, whether one is designing and building a resort hotel in Upstate New York, or a laboratory on the NIH Bethesda campus. Hossein strongly believes that society as a whole is experienced and felt most directly within space; he is unequivocally convinced the job of a room, building, neighborhood, village or town, is to enhance the sense of life and wellbeing in those who live, work and play in those spaces.
