the team

Rushdy Parker is an architect with over 11 years post professional registration experience.


He studied at the University of Cape Town where he completed his post-graduate degree in Architecture in 2003. During his studies, he worked in London for a year documenting primary healthcare facilities, a community theatre and residential projects. Post-graduate vacation periods were spent working for the architectural consortium documenting and supervising the construction of the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).


Rushdy started working for Ruben Reddy Architects as a candidate architect in 2005 and obtained his professional registration that year. His diligence, hard-working attitude and interest in contract administration allowed him to excel and he therefore absorbed senior responsibilities swiftly. Two years later, in 2007, Rushdy was to fulfil the role of principal agent on a R180m flagship luxury apartment block at the V&A Marina Residential.

A keen sportsmen in his youth, it is not surprising that he was drawn towards the field of sport architecture.

His crowning achievement in this field came when his firm designed the Sochi Ice Hockey Arena which was one of the main venues used during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia. The “Bolshoy Ice Dome” as it is now known has won a SILVER Medal as well as an IPC/IAKS DISTINCTION Award for Exemplary Sports and Leisure Facilities and IPC/IAKS Distinction for Accessibility in 2015.
