RMJM Architecture in Central Asia
RMJM’s origins in Central Asia began in Pakistan in 1960 when the Government of Pakistan engaged RMJM, as part of a team of world renowned experts including acclaimed Greek masterplanners Doxiadis and Harvard University, to shape the vision of the nation’s Capital Islamabad.
This team would be reunited in the early part of the 21st Century when Pakistan’s Defence Housing Authority (DHA) invited RMJM, Doxiadis and Harvard to collaborate, once again. This time the project was a new sustainable City outside Karachi. This project established a close relationship between RMJM & Osmani, one of Pakistan’s oldest and most established Architecture & Engineering firms.
Today RMJM Osmani is headquartered in Karachi and pursues projects around Pakistan, the Central Asian region and across the world.
RMJM also enjoy an enduring relationship with India, established in the later part of the 20th Century and in particular in the 21st Century where RMJM’s UK and Hong Kong Studios worked extensively in the country. Early housing projects for major developers in the country led to a series of more high profile commissions including the Kolkata Convention Centre, a new International Terminal at Kolkata Airport and a series of new stations for Hyderabad Metro.
