- 1 - Adib Dada (Architect/theOtherDada)

Born and raised in Beirut, Adib Dada earned a BAr in Architecture at the American University of Beirut - Lebanon in 2006, a Master’s Degree in the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU - USA in 2011 and completed a Biomimicry Graduate Certificate from the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute and Arizona State University. Dada reconsiders the world differently: like a system of relationships, exchanges, and not like a system of isolated objects and actions. His interests lie in the transdisciplinary dialogue between architecture, living systems, technology and art, which he aims to pursue through his integrated architecture lab theOtherDada (tOD).

tOD’s mission is to activate projects across architecture, design, and art by creating unconventional links at the frontier of science; acting as a catalyst to make a positive impact. tOD promotes a symbiotic relationship between nature and the built environment by being locally attuned and responsive, taking advantage of available resources and opportunities. tOD focuses on reducing the impact of its projects on the environment and exploring new ways of creating generous and regenerative buildings that place humans back within our global ecosystem, in harmony with other living species and nature.
