About the speaker:
Saba Innab is an architect, urban researcher, and artist born in 1980. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture Engineering from the Jordan University of Science and Technology (2004). Her practice departs from architecture as a multi-disciplinary practice. Through drawing, mapping, model making and design, her work explores the suspended states between temporariness and permanence, and is concerned with variable notions of dwelling and building and their political, spatial and poetic implications in language and architecture. Innab has worked as an architect with UNRWA on the reconstruction of Nahr el Bared Palestinian refugee Camp in the North of Lebanon, a project nominated for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2013. In 2014, she received the visiting research fellowship initiated by Studio-X Amman (Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, for Planning and Preservation). Her solo exhibitions include Al-Rahhalah (The Traveler), Marfa’ Gallery, Beirut (2016); and No-Sheep’s Land, Darat al Funun, Amman (2011–2012), and Agial Art Gallery, Beirut (2011). She participated in various group exhibitions, among which, Biennale d’Architecture d’Orléans #1, Frac Centre, France, 2017–2018; “Misunderstandings,” Campo, Rome, 2016, and Frac Center, Orléans, 2017; Qalandiya International III: “This Sea is Mine,” Darat al Funun, 2016; Marrakech Biennial 6, 2016; Home Works 7, Ashkal Alwan, Beirut, 2015; “Lest the Two Seas Meet,” Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, 2015; “HIWAR: Conversations in Amman,” Darat al Funun, 2013; and “Amman Journal,” Forum Schlossplatz, Aarau, Switzerland, 2012.
