I analyze Anoushiravan Ghamsari in two steps: first his place in architecture and next his accomplishments in combining architecture and civil engineering. I think they are both consistent with each other, despite that I’ve always known him for his place as a architect and an outstanding teacher and has been effective in its academic performance at saint Petersburg and his unique style. Anoushirvan has his own place and his fruits of labor are many and each has an important place in our community’s architecture.
