Tour Led By:
Nerin Kadribegovic, AIA, IIDA, Partner, Lehrer Architects
A third-generation architect passionate about resolving complex design problems, especially where the economy is of paramount importance; he finds beauty in the rigor and discipline of dissolving obstacles; his forté is navigating extremely restrictive challenges with heightened creative thinking, strategic logic, and aesthetic to discover unconventional design solutions. He is obsessed with artfully directing natural light through the built space to create nuanced unexpected experiences. As a partner, Nerin plays a strategic design and business leadership role. Informed by a multi-cultural background coupled with extensive global travel, in overseeing major projects he contributes unique perspectives on contemporary design agendas and social issues impacting today’s architectural process. Enduring displacement as a refugee of the war in Bosnia, his experience evokes deep empathic connection to homelessness and critical issues facing our city. Nerin served as lead architect on the award-winning ‘Restore Neighborhoods Los Angeles design project. Featured on the cover of Dwell Magazine in 2020, the project is a key social impact design endeavor reflecting Lehrer Architect’s signature core values: strength, utility/economy, and ‘beauty as a rudiment of human dignity. Molded with courage and vision, at age 17, Nerin arrived solo in the United States; a Bosnian war refuge with $300 sewn into his jeans; he has successfully been ‘creating out of nothing’ ever since. Nerin lives with his beautiful wife and two children in South Pasadena, California.
