Mrs. Nadine Samaha I Senior Principal Architect Level Architekture
MArch I ARBV I RAIA I NSWARB I LEED green associate I Permaculturist

Nadine Samaha is a senior principal architect at level architekture. She lectures on Sustainability and conducts research projects addressing climate change at RMIT. She is currently a councillor at the AIA Victorian Chapter and chairman of Sustainable Architecture Forum SAF at AIA.

She believes Sustainability is a coping strategy where we shift from the traditional linear system: extract from nature, make, use and dispose of, to a closed circle: emulate nature, make, use and biodegrade. Her focus in architecture is on creating more sustainable and biophilic environments which are the main pillars to ensure future social and economic growth.
