Yaara Yacoby

I am an M.Arch student at MIT's School of Architecture and Planning, interested in exploring the backstory of objects, materials, and practices. In the past, these narratives lead me to research historical documents, material properties, and psychological foundations for behaviors. In recent years, I've grown increasingly more interested in empathetic and socially focused design, with a profound interest in foregrounding the human experience in the design process.
