Blqees Zuhair is an architect and curator based in Libya. Her work combines architectural methods with photography and built heritage to investigate how space and sociality are formed and influenced by the surrounding regional contexts. She explores representational tools of past narratives and connects historical archives and site field research with contemporary cultural practices in order to investigate local history. In 2018, Blqees received her BA in Architecture from ARCHIP (Architectural Institute in Prague), and since then she has worked in professional architectural practice and pursued independent research projects. Lately, during her residency at the Delfina Foundation in London, she developed The Shore is the Land, a project that seeks to consider migration histories and seafaring from the perspective situated within the Libyan land.
