NOA, Najmias Office for Architecture
Najmias Office for Architecture [NOA] is an internationally awarded architecture studio based in Buenos Aires. Founded in 2007 by architect Oliverio Najmias, NOA is specialized in a wide range of professional services related to the built environment; NOA produces designs and projects on a wide variety of scales: from completely new buildings and Masterplans to small interventions and reforms in existing constructions. The common denominator in this diverse portfolio is the experience that is based on finding the balance between an innovative and blunt identity with the level of customer expectations and the overall quality of the projects.
The office has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions while the work of the study has been published around the world. NOA has been sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Secretariat of Culture of the Cdad. from Buenos Aires.
Professor Arch. Oliverio Najmias Professor Oliverio Najmias received the Bicentennial Medal at the Main Hall of the School of Architecture, Design and Urbanism, together with distinguished colleagues.
The medal was originally presented on August 9, in a ceremony headed by the Rector of the University of Buenos Aires Professor Dr. Alberto Barbieri and the President of the Argentine Mint, Mr. Rodolfo Gabrielli. The obverse side bears the logo “UBA 200” and the reverse side the major seal of the University, both modeled in low relief. The main seal, created by the painter, medalist and UBA Professor Ernesto de la Cárcova, was designed at the request of the institution to celebrate its centenary and since then it has been used on all official documents.
In the words of the Dean, “the awarding of the medal is a special way of recognizing the commitment and work of our professors, a central and constituent part of our university”.
Following the series of Great Masters of Architecture and taking advantage of what today would be the 115th birthday of Louis Isadore Kahn we want to share this original documentary, which still inspires today.
