Aamer – Art in Space, Space in Art

The Firm

AAMER ARCHITECTS is headed by acknowledged architect Aamer Taher, born in 1962 in Singapore. His professional career started in 1987 when he graduated from the National University of Singapore and in 1990 Aamer completed a Master of Architecture degree at the Architectural Association in London. After two years of practice with several firms including the prestigious Michael Hopkins & Associates, he returned to Singapore and started his practice as he saw an opportunity to bring a different approach to Design and Architecture. Chances are that you might first find designs by AAMER ARCHITECTS too unconventional. However, consider them from the 1 perspective of context and respect for nature, and you will discover the true harmony of these unexpected forms and architectural gymnastics. It all shows that creative freedom and revision of typical guidelines can generate aesthetically appealing and functional building projects. Aamer’s dedicated team of professionals has been demonstrating its commitment to excellence for more than 25 years.

The Founder

Aamer sees himself as an Artist with a soul where the pursuit of Truth is the ultimate goal, operating in an environment dominated by large corporations that are more concerned with bottom line profitability than with Architecture (note the capital A).

Back then, between attending the AA School and interning with various architecture firms, Aamer managed to indulge in the Arts, whether it was painting, pottery or roaming through the best museums all over Europe. He understood that a lifelong pursuit of an artist may not always fill the rice bowl, yet he remains adamant to relish in the importance of Art in life and the power it must improve one’s well-being.

And this inclusion of Art into his personal psyche became a very important part of his journey as an Architect starting his own practice delivering Aamer’s recognisable tropical architecture with sculptural forms.
