Spotlight on STL Village Member George Nikolajevich
George Nikolajevich STL Village Member George Nikolajevich The St. Louis Public Library transformation, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, and the UMSL Recreation and Wellness Center are three of the most recent local works of architect George Nikolajevich. George is a principal at Cannon Design based in St. Louis and has earned numerous awards for his designs, including an AIA honor for the St. Louis Public Library. His buildings can be found throughout the country and internationally and include the National Cancer Center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil scheduled for completion in 2017. Over the past two years, STL Village members and guests enjoyed special events that featured tours of the library and College of Pharmacy and George was on hand to share insights into his work. George was born in Yugoslavia. After graduating from the University of Belgrade and working in Switzerland for two years, he earned a Master of Architecture degree from Washington University in St. Louis and has lived and worked here ever since. While at Washington University, he met his future wife Sally, a graphic designer who later co-owned a landscape design business. They have lived in the Central West End for 37 years in a World's Fair era townhome that they gutted and rehabbed together: George provided the drawings and Sally oversaw the details. "I've really enjoyed some interesting conversations with other Village members about philosophy and politics," said George.
