Architecture, design and urbanism from the Asia Pacific
Eleena Jamil trained at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University in the United Kingdom. After a short working stint, she joined the architecture faculty at Cardiff as a teaching assistant while completing her MPhil and PhD postgraduate research. Eleena set up her own architectural practice in Kuala Lumpur in 2005 and it has since been growing steadily with an expanding portfolio of work that has won international accolades. Working within the context of South-East Asia and beyond, her work has been founded on research into specific social and climatic imperatives of each brief within a broader cultural framework. Projects developed within her practice have been widely published in international press and have been shortlisted for awards such as the World Architecture Festival Award, the Italian Plan Award, the LEAF Award and the American Architecture Prize.
