Dr Nasser Golzari, Course Leader of the Architecture MA course, and Dr Yara Sharif, Senior Lecturer, were featured in the Financial Times for their exhibition at the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
Their work, titled ‘Secrets of a Digital Garden: 50 flowers, 50 villages’, was used as the featured image of the article. The exhibition, in collaboration with Riwaq: Centre for Architectural Conservation, is a digital garden with 50 interactive flowers representing 50 Palestinian villages. It is a way of exploring a new means to navigate the landscape of Palestine using digital fabrication and film.
Dr Golzari and Dr Sharif have previously said about their work: “We feel very proud that the work is celebrating and sharing stories of forgotten villages and families from over 400 sites and that it will be shared with over half a million visitors in the course of four months.”
