2018 - present


Hariri & Hariri Architecture is a New York based international architecture & design firm established in 1986 by sisters Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri. Today they are celebrated as two of the most accomplished women in American architecture & design and are described by critics as one of the most progressive and out-of-the-box firms currently working in the United States.

At Hariri & Hariri I have worked across all project stages, gaining an understanding of the complete building process on a broad spectrum of projects within New York and internationally. These projects have included the conceptual design of a folding modular home, a number of one off houses, Madison Avenue private equity offices, a large residential project in Tehran and a hotel in Yaz’d, Iran.

My roles have included schematic design, BIM and algorithmic modelling, rendering and client presentations, design development and production of construction documents, site visits and coordination with consultants, clients and contractors.


ONLY WORK PUBLISHED ON THE HARIRI & HARIRI ARCHITECTURE WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR MY ONLINE PORTFOLIO HOWEVER A GREATER SELECTION OF MY WORK AT WILL BE BROUGHT FOR INTERVIEW INCLUDING CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS AND ADDITIONAL PROJECTS.


Elahieh Residential Tower, Tehran

I led this project from it’s conception, designing the plans and then working with the partners to design the facade. I built a BIM model and produced all drawings and renders for presentation to the client. I also built a physical model as shown.

 

Folding Modular Pod

This modest, modular, prefabricated pod has been designed with hinged, folded panels to facilitate their shipping and assembly. In its folded-flat configuration the lightweight pod fits on a flatbed truck so it can be transported to any desired location and then unfolded on site. Furthermore, it can be configured and expanded with additional pods into a variety of habitable combinations.

The project was originally designed for Revolution Precrafted as a prefab housing solution for the Philippines.

I joined this project at the end of the schematic design phase and was tasked with imagining the pods being used for different functions on fictional sites within the Philippines. I came up with the following scenarios:

  1. A residential development of single pod homes

  2. A luxury home comprised of two pods

  3. A series of pods used as beach huts for a resort

For each scenario I designed the site plan and plans of the pods, imagining the site and producing the images shown. These designs have since been exhibited at Art OMI in New York, with plans to build a prototype pod in the architecture park.


Madison Avenue Private Equity Offices

I was involved in the complete life cycle of this multi-storey office fit-out on Madison Avenue, from schematic design and design development to completing a full package of construction documents. Currently I am undertaking weekly site visits, coordinating with contractors to resolve on-site issues, and understanding the complexities of building within Manhattan. Construction is nearing completion.

This project has not yet been published and so my work is not available online, however can be brought to interview.


Additional Projects

I have worked on a number of private houses and apartments within New York with drawings available to be brought to interview. I am currently working on a large hotel project in Yazd, Iran and a waterside house in King’s Point, New York.
