Sahar Qawasmi is an architect, restorer, cultural organizer, and forager, committed to the conservation of land, restoration of architectural heritage, and preservation of Palestine’s cultural histories as testaments of creative collective resilience.

Sahar cofounded Sakiya – Art | Science | Agriculture with Nida Sinnokrot; it’s a progressive academy located on a hillside of deep architectural and natural histories in Ein Qiniya, Ramallah, Palestine, where artists, farmers, activists, and students rethink political and social agency and the space of the commons. There, through collective unlearning and experimentation, Sahar explores architectural and cultural practices outside of capitalist, national, and institutional structures to reimagine collective liberation.
