BIOGRAPHY

Gabriel Guévrékian (1892–1970) studied from 1915 to 1919 at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna under Oskar Strnad and Josef Frank, before working in the atelier of Strnad and Josef Hoffmann until 1922. He then moved to Paris, where he was active initially as a partner of Robert Mallet-Stevens and afterwards as an independent architect, garden designer, and publicist. Having designed houses nos. 67–68 at the Vienna model estate, he was summoned to Tehran by the Shah to work as an architect and city planner in 1933. Subsequently he was active in London, Paris, and Saarbrücken (from 1937), before emigrating to the USA (1948), where he held a number of professorships. Guévrékian, who was of Persian Armenian origin, was a co-founder and general secretary of the Congrès Internationaux d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM) and an important representative of the International Style.
