Sami Mousawi
Sami Mousawi was born in Baghdad in 1938 and studied architecture in Germany, subsequently starting his first practice there. In 1967, he moved his practice to Manchester, England. He has devoted his work to the understanding of the nature and meaning of Islamic building tradition, by taking a leading role in the search for a new identity and language for traditional Islamic architecture. His approach is to create a contemporary architecture that is influenced by tradition and cultural heritage, and also benefits from the advance of technology.
