Having identified the healthcare sector as holding particular potential, international architecture firm RMJM has appointed associate, Ali Uzun, to lead the Middle East division of its Global Health and Science Studio.

Uzun joins the firm with over 16 years of architectural experience in the healthcare, science and higher education sectors. He has worked on projects such as the ‘Biologikum’ Microbiology and Genetic Research Centre in Germany, the Manchester Joint Hospitals, Al Saleh Medical City in Yemen, the Etlik and Bilkent Health Cities in Turkey, and the Dubai Mall Medical Centre and Harvard Medical School, in the UAE.

In his new role, Ali will be responsible for the ongoing development of RMJM’s health and science division in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey. He will ensure that the latest technologies in environmental and sustainable design are implemented in all of RMJM’s healthcare and science projects.

“The prospect of working with RMJM, one of the most successful and creative architectural firms in the world, which also has such a strong presence in the Middle East, is both exciting and inspiring. With RMJM comes the opportunity of working on, and facilitating, some of the most exciting healthcare projects that will be designed and built globally. In addition, contributing to the improvement of the healthcare system in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey is something I hold very close to me, both personally and professionally,” Uzun commented.

RMJM’s Global Health and Science Studio will soon be promoting the findings of an extensive study into how innovative design methods can be applied to better prevent the spread of dangerous infections in GCC hospitals. The research will include new design models for isolation zones and directing airflow to keep staff and patients safe from threatening gasses or infections.

This is the third senior appointment made by RMJM in the last month. The others included Graeme White and Nick Haston.
