Mihran Mesrobian (1889–1975) was a Turkish-born Armenian who immigrated to the United States and became a prominent architect in the Washington, D.C. area.

Career[edit]

Mesrobian studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Istanbul[1] before immigrating to the United States in 1921. In 1924, he became the primary in-house architect for legendary Washington developer Harry Wardman. After Wardman declared bankruptcy in 1930, Mesrobian established his own practice, which produced a variety of residential and commercial work over the ensuing quarter century.[2]
