Rivetna Architects:Millenium Builders: Architecture Firm of the Year Award
Rivetna Architects was recently awarded the "Millenium Builders: Architecture Firm of the Year" Award by the USMCA, Pastor Bullock.
Cyrus Rivetna, AIA, the founder and principal of Rivetna Architects, is both creative and practical. He is the recipient of the prestigious American Institute of Architects Henry Adams Award; a published and exhibited photographer; and an expert on ancient Zoroastrian fire temples, witness a recent interview for a CBS documentary. Much of his professional formation happened during his “Doshi Years”, a two-year stint as senior architect at Sangath (India) at the office of iconic architect Shri Balkrishna Doshi who worked with Le Corbusier in Paris and who returned to Ahmedabad to supervise Le Corbusier’s projects. Those “Doshi Years” were the crucible where the ancient architectural idiom of the east fused with the process and technology of the west, creating what would become the focus of Rivetna Architects: producing quality architecture which satisfies both the spirit and the practical.
