Hello! Welcome! سلام

I’m Randa (رندة ), a Kuwaiti designer, researcher, educator, and architect by educational training. Currently working at Polymode Studio and teaching at the University of Tampa. I’m a visual thinker with an interest in bridging the gap between architecture and graphic design by creating spatial experiences in both the physical and digital world. My interests lie in the intersection of making through experimental, narrative, and speculative design processes. I believe in making; making with the hands as a way to have a deeper connection to the artifacts being made and materials being used. I view design as a process rather than an end goal – where the emphasis is shifted to the process of making that provides more questions than answers. I view questions as never-ending; in a constant search “towards an answer” but never one solution. I’m fascinated by both immaterial and material appurtenances (cultural, ecological, memories, collective beliefs, stories) and the way in which they impact our daily life. I love talking about archiving underrepresented narratives, time, and space! :)
