Samer Bou Rjeily (b. 1994) is an architect and designer based in Beirut, Lebanon. Marked by their large scale, his works explore the inherent tension between natural materials and man-made objects. His architectural designs employ wood, marble, and stone, often retrieved from abandoned houses in and around Beirut – in so doing, he reflects on the essence of raw materials, and the life they inject into past and present objects. Bou Rjeily holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Notre Dame university (NDU). He has shown his work in the framework of Beirut Design Fair in 2019, for which he received the Talent Award.
