Michel Mossessian is a world-class designer whose academic credentials are matched by a keen commercial sensibility. He has consistently been at the forefront of new approaches to design, sustainable architecture and new building technologies.
Personally mentored by Bruce Graham at Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Michel was involved in several internationally recognised projects including Exchange House and 1 Fleet Place in London and the Villa Olympica Hotel Arts in Barcelona, all in 1992.
In 2001, Michel was made Associate Director and Senior Designer of SOM’s London Office. His design leadership led to successes at the highest international level in projects in the UK, Portugal, Eastern Europe and the Middle East culminating in his winning design for the new NATO headquarters in Brussels.
Since founding mossessian & partners in 2005, Michel has successfully completed two major landmark buildings in London and Shanghai, and has been involved in all four phases of the Msheireb project in Doha, Qatar, which completes in 2016. Alongside these commissioned schemes, Michel is developing a series of projects that question the essence of an architecture beyond buildings and is particularly interested in addressing cultural localism that takes into account the current global economical conditions.
