Nerin Kadribegovic, AIA

Partner

Nerin Kadribegovic, AIA is an architect, designer and a Principal member of Lehrer Architects, an award winning and internationally published architecture and design studio in Los Angeles, California. In 2000 he earned his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from University of Utah. As part of his graduate work, Nerin studied parametric design and architecture at ESARQ in Barcelona, where his work on mass customization in architectural design was published and exhibited at H2o Gallery in 2002. This study set the course for his graduate thesis which earned him a Master’s degree in 2003 from Southern California Institute of Architecture, SciArc - one of the premiere architecture and design schools in the United States. 

 

As Principal, Nerin takes advantage of a studio that fosters a culture of creativity where life drawing, painting and product design in addition to architecture become integral part of the practice. As a key designer and construction manager for the renovation of the studio, Nerin is delighted that the space has recently been voted by Fast Company Magazine, as one of five “World’s Coolest Offices”. The project has been published worldwide and has also garnered numerous local, national and international awards.

 

Nerin is a founding member of the Research and Design (RaD) Studio at Lehrer Architects, where architects and designers test and prototype cutting edge materials and ideas. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Southern California Institute of Architecture as the Alumni Representative. Nerin is also an active member of the SCI-Arc Alumni Council.  He lives with his wife and daughter in Glassell Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
