Born and raised in Beirut, a city infamous for its turbulent history, I was part of the post war generation, who witnessed their city boom. Construction was on the rise, and with quarters of the city deemed almost unrecognizable due to bullet holes and mortar shelling, everything was always in a mode of constant change. This influenced me greatly. I was able to watch dilapidated buildings turn to parking lots, then to hangars which hosted temporary activities, then to construction sites filled with cranes, and finally to modern day malls and towers.
With such great changes occurring so frequently, one cannot help but question the directions that various projects were taking. And being fortunate enough to constantly travel and compare the happenings of my city to others, I developed a love for architecture and the ways in which it is translated by different peoples and cultures. My travels remain my strongest asset and most beneficial learning tools.
My love for both activities lies in the essence of my home city Beirut, for despite its many setbacks, it remains the city that never dies.
