NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF ARCHITECTURE AND CONSTRUCTION OF ARMENIA
University with a 100-Year History
A commemorative evening in honour of the death anniversary of late Artavazd Arzumanyan, civil engineer, PhD in Technical Sciences, held at NUACA, was attended by A. Ghularyan, Chairman of NUACA Board of Trustees, Y. Vardanyan, NUACA Rector, G. Galstyan, President of the Union of Builders of Armenia, Vice-Rectors, Heads of Chairs, A. Arzumanyan’s family members, relatives, friends and other honoured guests. The event was opened with the screening of a documentary about Mr. Arzumanyan’s life and activities, made by his family in honour of the 70th anniversary of the famous builder. The documentary was quite moving, and many of the guests confessed that, having known Mr. Arzumanyan for many years, they were unaware of a number of important episodes of his life and his numerous interests. There were many commemorative speeches, the words of adulation were abundant, but a silent thought with a red thread kept hovering in minds of those present: “Alas! You did not hear these words in your worldly life, my dear friend…”
Artavazd Avetik Arzumanyan was posthumously awarded the Gold Medal for “Substantial Contribution to Urban Development” by the Urban Development Committee for his significant contribution to the field of urban development.
