Our Founder

Noura Bishay, AIA Associate

Noura is an Egyptian architect who has a passion to design spaces that inspire, heal and empower the community to be more resilient. She received her master’s degree in Architecture from the New School of Architecture and Design. There, her thesis study, “The Green Network”, which focuses on the Park-to-Bay Project, received the SDAPA Academic Award. Noura designed the Park-to-Bay Project, which is a safe, sustainable, inclusive, green corridor that connects Balboa Park to the San Diego Bay with a linear park and safe bike lane. The double aisle of trees and linear park will replace parallel parking in the right of way (public domain), thus decrease pollution, encourage walkability and promote safe cycling. Noura combines compassion with art to design and create spaces that matter. Her passion to add walkable parks in San Diego's Park-Poor and low-income neighborhoods to alleviate poverty distinguish her. The community nominated Noura for the 2019 Inclusive and Diverse Leadership in Action Award. Noura chose the Kroc School’s Master’s in Social Innovation to continue her education. She is a winner for the changemaker's Challenge most original idea “The Blink Project”.
