Maya Jarrah

Studio Teaching Fellow

Maya Jarrah has recently completed her Master of Architecture degree at Carleton University. Her thesis Against Gravity: An Exploration in Post-Conflict Aleppo, explored ways in which designers could instrumentalize architecture as a tool to bring back joy and lightness to a post-war context, contributing to the re-emergence of the social and urban fabric of the city. Maya’s thesis was featured on design platforms like Dezeen, KooZA/rch and Arts Thread. Before moving to Canada, she worked at one of Germany’s leading architecture and design firms, where she contributed to multiple phases of local an international projects like the new stock exchange building in Tehran and a residential-commerical ensemble in Frankfurt. Maya has been an editor of Editions 19 & 20 for Building 22, the school’s annual publication for student work at Carleton University
