I have designed this portfolio of my architecture projects and ideas. It’s called “Play the Architecture”, because for me, architecture is like a game. It’s interesting, creative, adventurous, technical, logical and funny. Always with some other plans and new results. One can experience a lot of stories... Enjoy :-)

In the Architecture of Bone is the spirit of Armenia streaming through the mnemonic of Semerdjian’s family and their abode. This “evidence” exists by means of its words inscripted on a blank beatific hide. And this hide co-respirates as a biography of exile while lingering in the cells of language. Scenic registrations, interior postings via a vivid singularity. Semerdjian condenses the “undertow” and the droning of the Armenian Diaspora through a stark imaginal thriving. In the Architecture of Bone is a book brimming with marvelous seepage and recollection.—Will Alexander Alan Semerdjian's In the Architecture of Bone reads like a long poem cycle that pulls the reader into an open field in which Semerdjian weaves his explorations of language and art, Armenian history and family. These dynamic poems mingle the ghosts of the past with the pace of contemporary life. This talented, young poet is well worth your reading.—Peter Balakian

In October 2008 - while the collapse of Lehman Brothers threatened a global economic catastrophe - an urban research workshop was held at University College London to discuss the way space, culture and capital combine in shaping the turbulent economic landscapes of industrial cities today. The event featured a keynote from Professor Sir Peter Hall and heard new research from an interdisciplinary group of leading and emerging thinkers from across the fields of architecture, planning, economics,geography and cultural studies.The book collects the transcripts of all the talks, together with an essay and photography stimulated by the contributions. Together they offer an accessible and compelling set of perspectives on the urban causes and unfolding consequences of the great recession of 2008.Edited by Louis Moreno - UCL Urban LaboratoryDesigned by John Alderson

Architectural Education is still patterned around the “noble profession” ideology and producing professionals who thereby need to “cope up” with the pressures of retraining in the current practices that are constantly adjusting to the pressures of globalization for their survival and growth. While this can generally be seen as adding pressure to the lives of the fresh graduates, who join the profession in a state of half readiness due to the above gap end up getting frustrated in trying to adjust to the pressures of the contemporary architectural practices, it also forces the current practices to spend valuable resources including time and money to retrain these young graduates to absorb them in their practices.
