Public profile: 
Suha Babikir Kambalawi Hasan is a practicing architect with experience in Bahrain, Dubai, and Khartoum, and a former lecturer at University of Bahrain. Prior to that she has trained and worked as a journalist. Suha is the co-founder of Mawane, a platform for urban research based in Bahrain and a founding member of the MSc [Modern Sudan collective]. She is currently based in Stockholm where she is completing her PhD that investigates the agency of architecture and archives in the formation of memory in the post-colonial city. This stems from her interest in post- and pre-colonial studies of architecture and urbanism, more broadly in the global history of spatial cultures and their production through transnational and transcultural processes, specifically those across the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA). She is also interested in cross-cultural artistic practice across the region, including its history and legacy. She has recently joined the United Nations Development Programme as a consultant and the Architectural Association as co-director of the AA Visiting School Khartoum that explores the intersection of cultural heritage and climate change.
