    As a young graduate from the University of Tehran he won a nationwide competition in 1966 to design the Shahyad Tower, renamed the Azadi Tower. This first architectural project led to the opportunity to create some of Iran''s most distinctive projects with reference to traditional Persian architecture. Amongst them are the initial buildings of the Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran., the Persian Heritage Center, the Faculty for Business Management of the Tehran University and the Embassy of Iran in Beijing, China. As a member of the persecuted Bahá''í Faith, Amanat fled the country during the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

    Since moving to Canada in 1980, Hossein Amanat, designed the three administrative buildings on the Bahá''í Arc in Haifa, Israel, the Bahá''í House of Worship in Samoa., the Jiang’an Library for the Sichuan University, the media library for the Beijing Broadcasting Institute. He designed religious and cultural centers for the Bahá''í Faith near Dallas, Texas, Seattle and Washington, D.C., several multifamily condominiums in Santa Monica, California, and mixed-use high-rise buildings in San Diego, California and Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
