Keren Christina Mendjul

Keren hails from a multicultural background—she has lived and worked in Donetzk, Jerusalem, Berlin, Venice and NYC. Immersion in these diverse landscapes has taught her to believe in a simultaneous way of being where the knowledge of the past and imagination of the future are synced in the present, allowing for timeless, perpetual creation.

She is the principal of KCM Arkitekt Studio based in the Middle East and NYC. In 2015, Keren founded MASSA Journal of Architecture based in Israel/Palestine, a collaborative initiative that believes reimagining alternative futures belongs to everyone rooted in these places. Keren received a M.ARCH II from The Cooper Union where she drew and casted flowers in bronze, and a B.ARCH I from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem where she investigated the elimination of ground.

In 2013, in an exchange at Universita IUAV di Venezia,Venice, Italy Keren participated in an installation of Vadim Zakharov, 55th Venice Biennale at the Russian Pavilion. In 2011, she formed part of a practical and theoretical study at CEPT University, Ahmedabad, India in collaboration with Professor and Architect Sharon Rotbard, where she and 15 other participants won First Prize Arie and the Eldar Sharon Award, for their design and construction of a local children’s school.
