Focus on architecture, traditional artisanal crafts, and high places. 


Meet our multi-talented architect, researcher, and humanitarian worker from Lebanon! With a diverse range of experiences under her belt, she has made a significant impact in her field. From participating in various research projects and emergency response efforts with local and international organizations and institutes, to conducting neighborhood assessments, her work has centered around cities, prosperity, urban development, and humanitarian aid. In 2022, she founded “Wirach,” an online mapping platform and directory aimed at increasing the visibility of local crafts and workshops in Lebanon, highlighting their importance, and documenting their stories. Her passion for preserving cultural heritage and promoting economic growth in her community has been a driving force behind this initiative. Having spent several years working on the field with different communities, she developed an insatiable curiosity and interest in traveling, exploring new cultures, and challenging her boundaries and limits with every new experience. Her enthusiasm for learning and pushing herself beyond her comfort zone is matched only by her unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in the world.
