Joanna Sabra joined Studio Outside in October 2016 after relocating from Lebanon where she received a Bachelors in Landscape Architecture at the American University of Beirut. The contrast of growing up surrounded by natural beauty in the mountains of Lebanon and later living in the vibrant city of Beirut has highlighted the value which Landscape Architecture adds to communities. Joanna's college experience and travels throughout the Middle East and Europe have shown her that each landscape is purposed for goodness, whether it is through its functionality, aesthetic, ecological significance, or human interaction. To her, the role of Landscape Architecture is to cultivate and achieve these purposes in each site throughout the design process.
