LDEM graduate Lorena Gebran featured in international magazine

Lorena Gebran (LDEM, 2018), research assistant at LDEM, is featured in the prestigious, annual international magazine GA Houses 157: Project 2018. The magazine features significant residential housing projects around the world for work, such the Spanish project Casa Muchavista that Gebran worked on.

During the 2017 summer semester as part of the LDEM 292 Practicum course, Lorena Gebran interned at Grupo Aranea, an architectural firm based in Alicante, Spain. The experience was a major turning point in her professional career. Lorena’s work on the project Casa Muchavista project allowed her to develop design skills by working both independently and as part of a team to design areas of the house including gardens, patios, and indoor landscapes. In developing the project concept, Lorena relied on sketching, model making, and graphical representations.

Beyond the opportunity to work with international, interdisciplinary professionals including architects, industrial designers, product designers, and engineers, the experience provided Lorena a broad understanding of landscape and architectural concepts and the way in which landscape architecture is allied with other disciplines, complimenting and en​hancing them. Ms. Gebran commented, “I am extremely grateful to have been part of this project as I have learned tremendously and developed my design and communication skills. I am also proud to see my work published”.​
