Shams Eldien Naga MSUP ’86, Principal of Naga Architects and Robert J. Nardi MCRP ’78, Senior Vice President of Louis Berger, are the recipients of the inaugural Dean’s Medal of Merit Award. The award honors lifetime achievement in their chosen fields.

Thanks to a well-balanced approach between practice and discipline, NAGA ARCHITECTS has won numerous design awards and has become one of the top A/E firms in the Middle East. The firm has its headquarters in Dubai, and offices in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Riyadh, Doha, and Tripoli. Beyond the Middle East, NAGA has a growing subsidiary in Boston, MA, and has recently opened a branch in Toronto, Canada.
