Adjunct Assistant Professor

Khaled Malas is an architect from Damascus and a co-founder of the Sigil Collective. He is also a PhD candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. During the Summer of 2017, Khaled led the Second Janet Abu-Lughod Seminar at Studio-X Amman on Qusayr ‘Amra, an early Islamic bathhouse renowned for its unique painting cycle.

Sigil are an Arab collective based in Beirut and New York City. They seek to explore the simultaneously marvelous and terrifying metamorphoses of the Arab landscape that is the stake and site of historical and contemporary struggles. Since 2014 they have been engaged in building rural architectures of resistance in Syria including water-wells and electricity-generating windmills.

He remains condemned to hope.
