 Réda Amalou Partner & Founder
Reda Amalou, a French national, trained and qualified in 1990 as an architect in London at the University of East London under the tutorship of Elias Zenghelis and Eleni Gigantes.

After a few years working for London based firms, mainly as a project architect for projects across Europe (Switzerland, France, etc...) he moved back to Paris. He then joined Thurnauer Architects where he acted as a design architect for 4 years. During his time there he was mainly involved in large urban planning projects and architectural design competitions.

In 1997, he founded AW² in Paris France. From the start, Reda Amalou has led the firm to become a design-oriented practice with a strong International track record. The firm has now had projects designed or built in over 25 different countries.

Reda Amalou is personally and actively involved, with Stephanie Ledoux, in the design of all AW2 projects. His work through AW² has been widely recognised worldwide.

The major projects achieved have been: the winning entry to the Munkkisaari International competition in Helsinki, Finland; the FV hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; ESMOD fashion school in Paris, and the Nam Hai resort in Hoi An Vietnam, the first five star resort designed by AW².

Other achievements include taking part in the Athens 'Long Walls urban planning exhibition' in Greece and the 'San Paolo Architecture Biennale exhibition' in Brazil, as well numerous publications and conferences. In the last few years the firm has also been rewarded with design awards and worldwide recognition for its projects, including the 2012 MIPIM award for Best Hotel and a nomination at the AFEX Grand Prix d'Architecture.

Reda Amalou also works as a designer for several brands such as Toulemonde Bochart and Baccarat. This side of his work has become more important in the last few years and is developing fast with several on-going new projects.

Reda Amalou is also elected as a member of the board at AFEX (French Architects Overseas) since 2006. He is and acting Vice President of the Association, which has a membership of approximately 200 architectural firms in France and several institutional partner members.
