Ghinwa Al Khatib


As an architecture major graduate and currently part of the Socio-Anthropology of Cities master’s program at the Lebanese University, Ghinwa believes in the power of multi and interdisciplinary studies to enhance the scope and depth of knowledge as well as effective interventions. 

Her current thesis entitled “Public Open Spaces for Disaster Resiliency – Case Study: Beirut  Blast 2020” examines the potential of public open spaces in positively shaping our day-to-day lives while being a crucial actor in disaster resilience policies. Her research aims to learn more about the complex intersection of cultural, social, economic, and spatial dynamics. 

Ghinwa is a great advocate of community development initiatives notably maintaining culture and legacy of her hometown Falougha.
