Mehrdad Yazdani

Design Principal

A member of the CannonDesign Board of Directors and leader of CannonDesign's Yazdani Studio, Mehrdad Yazdani has succeeded in bringing a visionary design sensibility to a broad portfolio of significant projects on a global basis – including projects in Asia, India, and the Middle East. His work has received numerous awards and international recognition, with features in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Architectural Record, Architecture, and Progressive Architecture, as well as a number of prestigious international journals. Practicing at the intersection of the large office and the small studio, Yazdani was named by Progressive Architecture magazine as one of the world's top emerging architects just three years after graduating from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design. He has succeeded in bringing a design sensibility characteristic of boutique firms to a broad portfolio of significant work for notable large firms.
