Architects talks: Lina Ghotmeh

Yale School of Architecture and the Zaha Hadid Foundation will host a talk by Lina Ghotmeh, founder of Lina Ghotmeh—Architecture, an international practice of architects, researchers, designers and artists. The practice takes an in-depth, historical, and materially sensitive approach to its projects, developed through a process of thorough historical research.

Recent projects have included: Hermès Workshops, Normandy, France; Stone Garden Housing, Beirut; and the 2023 Serpentine Pavilion, London.

Lina Ghotmeh was declared by the European Architects Review as one of 10 “Visionary Architects for a New Decade”. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the AJAP Prize of the French Ministry of Culture in 2008, the Dejean Prize of the French Academy of Architecture in 2016, the Cardin Award of the French Fine Arts Academy in 2019, the Tamayouz “Woman of Outstanding Achievement” Award in 2020, the prestigious Schelling Foundation Architecture Prize in 2021. She has lectured and taught internationally, including at Yale School of Architecture and University of Toronto.

Time: Doors open 6.30pm and the talk starts at 7pm. Our exhibition, Images de Tunisie, will be open especially from 6.30pm until 7pm that evening for attendees of the talk.
