Born in 1937 in Tehran, after completing his studies at the University of Tehran’s Art and Architectural School, Teimouri moved to France to complete his PhD in architecture. Aside from his activities in academia, the acclaimed architect has made several noteworthy contributions in the realm of architectural design.

He has also received the French Association of Architects prize and was the first to prepare “the color theory in architecture and design.”

Teimouri’s artistic endeavors are not limited to architecture. He is also an avid calligrapher and has penned several books on Sufism and mysticism.
