Lecturer, Architectural Design

Mazen Sakr is a lecturer in Architectural Design. His experience is rooted both in academia and in practice. His academic pursuits have involved exploration of form-making techniques through studies in descriptive geometry, local historic precedents and contemporary construction techniques. His essay “Consequential Forms; The Blur Moments Between Sculpture and Architecture” studied the evolution of the discipline of sculpture after the Abstract Expressionism Movement through the 1970s and whether architecture dares to meet sculpture halfway.
Mazen practices as a Senior Associate at Anmahian Winton Architects in Cambridge. His most recently completed project at AW includes the award-winning Gemma Astronomical Observatory. Other projects at AW include the Capital Vista tower in Ankara, Turkey; a new urban masterplan for Winchester, MA; and the award-winning Community Rowing Boathouse in Allston. At AW Mazen’s efforts are advancing the firm’s work in socially innovative projects as well as product development and research.
Mazen earned an M.Arch from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design in ’09, and a B.Sc. summa cum laude in Architecture from Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design in ’06.
