Roula Salamoun

Roula Salamoun (b. 1984) is an architect, designer, and the founder of a studio developing multidisciplinary projects. Her practice explores the boundaries between analog and digital design practices, experiential design, and material experimentation through multi-scalar interventions ranging from architecture to product design. Salamoun has a BA in Architecture from the American University of Beirut and pursued graduate studies at Columbia University, New York, where she was awarded the William Kinne fellowship. She co-founded the GSAPP collective for Beirut in 2020 and collaborated with artist Ieva Saudargaitė Douaihi on Nationmetrix, a multi-sensorial installation that probes into the experience of crossing national borders with a Lebanese passport, for which they received the 2019 Arte Laguna ARS Prize. Her work has been exhibited at Studio X in New York, US (2011); the Venice Architecture Biennale, Italy (2014); the House of Today Biennale, Beirut, Lebanon (2008); the Piasa Auction in Paris, France (2020); and Dubai Design Week, UAE (2021). Her work has been highlighted in major trade publications such as Wallpaper*, Architectural Digest, Galerie Magazine, and Domus.
