Practicing ArchitectureArchitect's Knowledge Resource
Face of the AIA
Marlene Imirzian, AIA, began her career in architecture in her home state of Michigan. Her first jobs were under the mentorship of important modernist architects Gunnar Birkerts and William Kessler. In 1995, not long after moving to Phoenix, Marlene started her firm, Marlene Imirzian & Associates Architects.
The firm now has offices in Phoenix, Arizona and Escondido, California and works on a diverse range of projects types, from commercial and residential to medical, higher education, civic, and historic preservation. The firm is known for its design excellence, project performance, and as a leader in integration of sustainable design practices for building.
