Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign

A laboratory for design

The Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign is a laboratory for exploration and experimentation in architecture. Established upon the reputation and leadership of award-winning designer Mehrdad Yazdani, the studio sits at an unrivaled vantage point in the design world—able to operate as a small design studio and also leverage the resources and reach of our global practice.

The studio includes a diverse team of architects, designers, 3D artists, technical specialists and creative thinkers entirely committed to pushing the boundaries of design—from refining concepts of sustainability to the application of radically new technologies and urban initiatives.

  • Changing markets and technology have meant architecture firms either need to become massive and scale their practice accordingly, or shrink and find a razor-sharp focus. Mid-size regional firms often lack the resources to keep up with technology and maintain subject-matter expertise. Yazdani Studio fuses the best of both worlds.


Our work


  • We’re not typology-focused or geographically focused. We’re agile enough to do a little exhibition space of 1,500 square feet or work on a billion-dollar medical facility.
