#5 Masaha: Climate Change in the Arab World: Amale Andraos




In the season finale of the Climate Change in the Arab World mini-series, Masaha speaks to Dean Amale Andraos about climate, pedagogy, and practice. In this episode, students Bisher Tabbaa, Sarah Hejazin, and Aya Abdallah discuss how the relationship between climate and pedagogy has developed over Dean Andraos’ tenure at GSAPP. They also explore its adjacency with practice and identity issues in the Arab world.

Amale Andraos is the Dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Dean Andraos is committed to design research and her writings have focused on climate change and its impact on architecture as well as on the question of representation in the age of global practice. She is co-founder of WORKac, a New York-based firm that focuses on architectural projects that reinvent the relationship between urban and natural environments.

Masaha is a student association at GSAPP that investigates contemporary issues facing the Arab world. This mini-series consists of conversations with designers, practitioners, and scholars whose work responds to the issue of climate change, which is affecting populations worldwide with devastating impacts on the livelihoods and welfare of vulnerable communities. (This conversation was recorded remotely in October 2021.)
