Architecture firm RMJM Dubai has announced its newest director.

George Arvanitis is the new head of Masterplanning & Urbanism at the d3-based RMJM Dubai.

Born in Canada, George grew up in the USA before moving to Europe.

He spent 20 years there, building his professional portfolio in London and most notably in Greece, where George’s first large-scale project saw him working from concept all the way to construction completion on the New Athens International Airport.

Studying at Harvard University, George completed masters degrees in a number of disciplines, including architecture and urban planning.

His international career has now led him to Dubai where he first worked as an Urban Design Director for Parsons and is beginning the 2020s as the newest director at RMJM.

Two of RMJM Dubai’s projects, the Grand Mosque of Gate Avenue and the KSA Pavilion, have recently been shortlisted for the upcoming d3 RIBA Gulf Architecture Festival 2020.

Organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects as part of its Gulf Chapter, the event will run from November 11th-13th, in parallel with the Dubai Design Week.

The programme aims to promote architecture and design excellence in countries of the Gulf, including the UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the Sultanate of Oman.
