With active projects in Lebanon, France, Romania, Canada and Dubai,
and others planned further afield, Anastasia is a constant traveler both
for her architectural work and for her global speaking engagements.
In 2014, she co-curated Agora, Bordeaux’s La Biennale d’Architecture
d’Urbanisme et de Design, with Youssef Tohme, around the theme of public spaces.
That same year, and in collaboration with MEXTROPOLI, she worked on redefining the meaning
of public space in Mexico City through the use of informal markets.
A passionate architect and firm advocate for women, Anastasia is the founder and president of
a Lebanese NGO advocating for international social and gender equality in the workplace, both in Lebanon and abroad.
“We live in a world that is changing faster than ever. In recent years, architecture has evolved at an increasing speed, but today it feels that we are on the verge of a revolution. The time has come to impose and experiment, to push toward a new design framework. Architecture allows us to give shape to our dreams and interpret them in reality.”
Most recently, a number of Anastasia’s projects received various nominations and awards. The Haddad Compound in Canada was nominated for the German
Design Awards 2019 in the category of Architecture, and the DAM-MAD villa in Beirut won the German Design Awards 2019 with a special mention in the category of Architecture. The DAM-MAD villa also won the Iconic Award 2018: Innovative Architecture – Best of Best in the category CONCEPT with distinction.
