Lina Ghotmeh, a humanist architect
Lina Ghotmeh Architecture is a critically acclaimed, international firm of architects, designers, and researchers based in Paris, with a multi-disciplinary approach.
Her designs, infused with innovation and poetics, reveal her transversal and multidisciplinary approach to her discipline. Colored by the warscapes of Beirut, her birthplace, Lina Ghotmeh, with her team, works with a rigorously historical and materially sensitive approach to Architecture. Each of the firm’s projects develops from thorough historical research into an exquisite intervention that enlivens your memory and your senses. This is an «Archeology of the Future» where every new gesture is drawn from the traces of the past.
Lina Ghotmeh Architecture design ecologically and sustainably: the projects derive their aesthetics from their close relationship with nature and express the essence of the materials from which they are fashioned. The firm’s upcoming projects include an enviornmentally conscious 14-storey wooden tower in Paris named Réalimenter Masséna – winner of Reinventer Paris, a call for projects with an innovative urban vision – Stone Garden Art Foundation and green housing tower in Beirut, and interior renovation of Palais de Tokyo’s restaurants in Paris.
Lina Ghotmeh herself was selected by the European Architects Review as one of 10 « Visionary Architects for a New Decade » .
