Sam Ghantous operates with the entanglements between architecture and the contemporary media of internet culture: how architecture is both shaped and transmitted by technical means of communication. His independent practice uses networked images and interactive software simultaneously with constructed spaces, objects, and situations. Through this diverse media production he addresses issues of architectural authorship and the possibilities of collective life, while his designs engage precarity, humor, and reuse of familiar things.
Sam’s solo show “” was exhibited in New York with YveYANG Gallery. He has also exhibited with Postmasters Gallery, ZKM at the Ludwig Museum, ASSAB One, and Ooeli Park. Sam has taught studios and courses at Cornell AAP, University of Toronto, and MIT SA+P where he received his Master of Architecture. He is currently a Research Fellow at the Station+ Chair of Arno Brandlhuber at ETH Zürich. He has published in Thresholds Journal, PLAT Journal, and TRANS Magazine, and assisted in editing "Architecture and Action". He co-directs the multidisciplinary studio FOREIGN OBJECTS.
