Video: L.E.FT

L.E.FT is a NYC-based design collective comprised of architects Makram el Kadi, Ziad Jamaleddine and Naji Moujaes. Established in New York in 2001, L.E.FT is dedicated to examining the intersections of cultural and political productions as they relate to the built environment. With an interest in diverse programs, a focus on unconventional interpretations of architecture is posited as a design onset, redefining the relationship between the architectural object and both its context and its users from a social as well as an aesthetic perspective.

Spatial qualities as well as programmatic typologies are understood in their importance and role within a specific social context. The specificity of a ‘Site’ is thus understood not only as a physical context within which one is building, but primarily as a socio-political and economical context.

The firm has been recognized internationally with numerous awards, publications and exhibitions for quality and excellence in design. The partners combine their architectural practice with research projects they conduct in the form of studios at several universities in the U.S. including Yale, UPenn, Cornell University and Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

Currently, L.E.FT is design architect for residential and cultural projects in New York, Dubai, Turkey, and Beirut.

The firm is the recipient of the prestigious Young Architects Award from the Architectural League of New York in 2002.
