Farah is an internationally trained architect and designer with over a decade of experience in Canada and the Middle East. In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, she co-founded Tri Design Studio, leading the design of multiple civic and commercial projects. Her work involved close collaboration with local artisans, incorporating traditional crafts within architectural projects, fostering concepts of sustainability – an extension of her research in the Master’s program in Sustainability in the Built Environment.  

At DIALOG, Farah has contributed to design excellence across diverse project typologies. Her portfolio spans educational, civic, and healthcare projects, notably including the Toronto Western Hospital New In-Patient Tower, TELUS World of Science in Edmonton, and Centennial College A-Building Expansion, Canada’s first LEED Gold, zero carbon, WELL certified, mass timber, higher-education facility.  She considers every project an opportunity to nurture curiosity, explore, collaborate, tell a story, and ultimately elevate the human experience. 

What is your favorite DIALOG project?
Centennial College – A-Building Expansion, one of my early projects at DIALOG. For me, it strikes a balance between poetry and pragmatism. It is an aspirational project, beautifully designed, efficient, and was completed on time and within budget. The collaborative process brought me memorable joy and lasting friendships.

Where do you find inspiration?
The intersections between various forms of creative thinking inspire me. Much of my design thinking translates into my photography work, as I’m drawn to a theatrical approach that involves staging and set design. I also enjoy film and literature.

What do you do to get out of a creative rut?
Muay Thai training and teaching. The supportive community, the challenge of connecting and synchronizing the mind and the body, and the deep focus the sport requires give me an energy boost and reset my mind.
