Ozayr Saloojee is Associate Editor of Design for the Journal of Architectural Education and an Associate Professor of Architecture at Carleton University in Ottawa, where he is also cross-appointed faculty at the Institute for African Studies, affiliate faculty at Carleton’s Center for the Study of Islam and Adjunct Faculty in Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota. His teaching, research and creative practice are preoccupied with finding an architecture enacted otherwise, and of design as an emancipatory spatial practice. His work links architecture, politically contested landscapes, design justice and geo-imaginaries. He is a founding member of the interdisciplinary HiLo/YOW+ Collective, shortlisted to curate Canada’s 2023 contribution to the Venice Biennale. Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, he competed his B.Arch and Post-professional M.Arch at Carleton University and his PhD at the Bartlett School of Architecture (University College London).
