As an architectural designer in a family full of doctors, Fiza realized early in her career that her passion lay at the intersection of healthcare and architecture. She focuses on clinical planning, while her project experience includes a range of healthcare, civic, institutional and residential projects. Fiza’s design approach centers around the belief that well-designed spaces can positively contribute to individual and community health and wellbeing. She thrives on engaging with users and collaborating with integrated teams to generate innovative and effective design solutions. As the 2020 recipient of DIALOG’s internal scholarship, The Iris Prize, she researched the role of the environment as a catalyst to healing and the architectural placebo effect before sharing her findings practice-wide.
