Lina Ghotmeh – Architecture is a critically acclaimed, international firm of architects, designers, and researchers based in Paris. Innovative, Lina Ghotmeh’s works deploy themselves at multiple scales and geographies — from object design to museums architecture, in France and abroad. As an Archeology of the Future, each project relates to its site’s past and emerges as a dialogue, soliciting our memory and senses.
The atelier gathers more than 25 professionals and is led by Beirut-born Lina Ghotmeh, co-architect of the Estonian National Museum (which won the Grand Prix Afex 2016 and nominee of the Mies Van Der Rohe Award 2017).
She was awarded with the European 40/40 Award 2018, the DEJEAN Award 2016 form the French Academy, the AJAP Award granted by the French Ministry of culture, and the 2A Awards 2018 in Barcelona.
She was also selected by Dezeen as one of the “5 Biggest Talents of 2018” and has been nominated lately in London for the Women in Architecture Mira Gemmill Award 2019.
For Lina Ghormeh — Architecture, every project is an invitation into a new sensitive realm; revealing a narration drawn into history and memory through a heightened sense of materiality.
