Hi, I'm Somayeh Ghorbani. A Creative Designer/ Architect
A Little About Myself.
I recently graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, USA, majoring in Design in Sustainable Urban Environment (master’s degree). I have finished a five-year bachelor degree in architecture at the American University in Dubai (AUD). Prior to studying at AUD, I studied one full year of Architectural Technology at CUNY--New York City College of Technology, and one full year of General Education at Massasoit Community College (Brockton, MA, USA). As part of my degree requirements at AUD, I worked at a well-known architectural firm in Dubai, the X-Architects (www.x-architects.com), as an intern during summer of 2015. At the X-Architects, I had the opportunity to work with a team who was working on Sheikh Mohamed Bin Khalifa heritage house (a United Arab Emirate’s leader). The aim of the project was to create a new extension on the old existing building as well as preserving the historical part. This was an exciting opportunity for me to work on a real project and develop skills on how modern and old architectural elements can be made to coexist. Apart from my profession, I love to travel and explore the world’s architectures and cultures. I have traveled to East Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America and visited countries such as Japan, Korea, Germany, Portugal, UK, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Oman, Thailand, China, Turkey, Netherlands, Austria, Ireland and Canada as well as having had significance exposure to different cultures, including Iran, the United Arab Emirates, and the USA. I am very proactive and care about being healthy and doing workouts, with my favorite activity being bodybuilding; I also like to promote healthy eating to others by posting my diet plans on Instagram and other social media.
