Jordanna Ibghy is an artist and architectural designer currently based in Philadelphia, where she is pursuing a Master of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. Her topic of interest deals with the implications of design on the moving body's perception of space throughout the rituals of everyday life.
After completing her BA in Architectural Design with a second major in Architectural History, Theory, and Criticism at the University of Toronto, she worked as an architectural designer in firms in Canada and abroad. In 2018, she obtained a post-professional Masters degree in Architecture with a focus in Urban Design and Housing from McGill University. For her Master's Report, she wrote Walking in the City: Discovering Sense of Place Through Movement, which investigates the history and theory of urban walking, play, and learning through movement with regard to urban design practices. Her Thesis presents an argument for affective urban walkscapes as an essential tool for the creation of landscapes for learning.
Jordanna has been involved in various exhibitions, public art installations, and performances. Recently, she displayed Dislocation, a collaborative work that expresses identity in urban space through movement.
