Amale Andraos received her M.Arch. from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard and her B.Arch. from McGill University. She began her teaching career at the American University of Beirut and has held faculty posts at Princeton, Harvard, and the University of Pennsylvania. Along with her WORKac co-founder and husband, Dan Wood, an alumnus of the School, Amale has been at the forefront of a contemporary wave of experimentation and the profession’s reconsideration of long held assumptions about the interplay of built environments and the natural world. Their long list of projects ranges from a master plan for rebuilding downtown Beirut to the design of the Edible Schoolyard at P.S. 216 in Brooklyn.
