Maya Jarrah, Architectural Designer

"Resist the idea that you need a client to make architecture... Resist believing that the result is the most important thing.. Resist anyone who asks you to design only the visible part.. Resist the idea that architecture can save the world...”- Lebbeus Woods “Tradition is important when it contains moments of change, when it is not just outward form and when it also implies an idea of what goes on inside a building, of conflicts and a potential for innovation. Otherwise tradition just means being stuck in a rut.” - Álvaro Siza “Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that everything you can ever imagine has already been done. They are incorrect.” - Sumayya Vally “Architecture is situated somewhere between collective service and poetry” - Lina Bo Bardi

about

I’m Maya, an architectural designer based in Canada, currently working at DIALOG’s Toronto Studio. I approach architectural design with careful consideration of the contextual, historical, political and environmental facets of a project. Concurrently, I believe that architects should dare to probe, experiment and challenge the conventional.
