Laith Matarweh Studio for Architecture

Laith Matarweh is an architect and design researcher. He received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the German Jordanian University and his Masters of Science in Design Research from Bauhaus Dessau, Hochschule Anhalt & the Humboldt University of Berlin. Laith's master’s thesis, ‘Wholeness and Life’, touched on the topic of ‘Life’, how it emerges in architecture and the built environment within Jordan; how it is an impetus for relevance, diversity, and individuality. His interests extend to photography and minimal illustrations, by which he strives to transcend emotions and immaterial experiences either through pictorial representations or the employment of basic geometries. Laith founded his architectural design studio in Amman in 2020, with a portfolio of projects that deal with the specifics of the Jordanian context. Currently, he is a Senior Architect at Khammash Architects in Amman leading large-scale projects & master planning competitions in the Middle East. He also practiced architecture at Sahel Al-Hiyari Architects where he was responsible for a design proposal for the ROLEX pavilion at Venice Biennale 2018, and several high-end residential projects in Jordan.
