Born in NYC and raised in both Venice Beach, California and Peaks Island, Maine, Tima brings a breadth of experience and leadership to Relativity Architects. He studied at Rice University and the Southern California Institute for Architecture. His passion of art led him to the practice of architecture as a launching point to explore the three dimensional space within his own paintings. In addition to his American studies, Tima has spent considerable time studying throughout Europe. He completed a one year artist-in-residency in Israel. Since then, Tima has pursued the exploration of art and the built environment through his own practice of architecture and design. From straw-bale construction to various high-end hospitality projects and from motion picture studios to master plans, he is vigilant throughout the process to achieve balance between quality, style and efficiency. Tima was also an adjunct professor at Woodbury University and acts as a guest juror at several Los Angeles universities.
As co-founding Principal of RA, Tima continues to explore the physicality of art and architecture through his work with RA. He has received an AIA scholarship as well as two AIA Hospitality Design awards. Additionally, Tima is the recipient of both the Individual Boutique 18 Design Award and the Boutique 18 Design Restaurant Award.
