My name is Babak Shakiba. I was born in Iran in 1987 and have spent my life travelling around the globe ever since. The things that human beings all over the world have in common, are what interest me the most. The love for geometry and order is something that I’ve noticed every place I’ve been to. The magnificent renaissance buildings of Florence, the spectacular ruins of Persepolis and Acropolis, the astonishing temples of South Korea and the beautiful mosques of Isfahan, all share a common trait. They all rappresent a search for order through geometry and critical thinking. I try to follow the examples listed above as an architect and as a photographer.
My photos have been published in various Architecture books and magazines and in 2016 I hosted an exhibition of my works in Florence. I always enjoy getting to know my clients over a cup of coffee as I believe that listening to people’s stories and learning about their hopes, their ambitions and their dreams, provide me with the necessary tools to tend to their needs more efficiently.
I’m currently based in Konstanz, Germany, where I occasionally collaborate with an Architecture studio and I’m also in the process of obtaining my master’s degree in Architecture from the university of Florence, Italy.
