The first in a series hosted by the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture, SALA is hosting Mariam Kamara, Principal Architect of atelier masōmī, based in Niamey, Niger. Mariam obtained her Masters in Architecture from the University of Washington. In 2013, she became a founding member of united4design, a global collective of architects working on projects in the U.S., Afghanistan and Niger. This led to her founding atelier masōmī in 2014.

Hosted by students from For a Feminist Architecture (FaFa) and the UBC chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (UBC NOMAS), the event will feature a short lecture and a student-led discussion with Ms. Kamara.
