Reem Abi Samra


I am a Lebanese-American student entering my third year in the Master of Architecture program, and have been working with PennPraxis since Summer 2020. Prior to Penn, I completed a BFA in Architectural Design and a BA in Urban Studies from Parsons School of Design in New York City. My academic interests lie in exploring the socio-economic and political complexities that govern the natural and built environments in our ever-expanding urban world. I have always been geared towards designing spaces for making and performance. In my free time, I love playing the guitar, watercolor painting, dancing, and hiking.
