Mariem Elaoudni, Tunisia
Mariem Elaoudni is an architect who graduated from the Tunis National Architecture and Urbanism School. Her first Master’s thesis was on participatory architecture and how to apply it to the Tunisian ancient tradition of Sejnane pottery, which is a listed UNESCO intangible cultural heritage. This project was later implemented by an association supporting the women ceramists of this region.
As part of her studies, she took part in several workshops and discovered the Tunisian Heritage through photography and specific site studies, such as the medinas of Sfax, Tunis and Djerba.
Passionate about history and heritage, in 2023 she is graduating from the Architecture and Territories Research Masters program at the Versailles National School of Architecture. Within the scope of this degree, she did a research residency at Atelier 11 and is currently working on her Master’s thesis about Cité Falguière artists’ studios. Mariem will present her research at Atelier 11 for the National Architecture Days, October 13 & 14, 2023.
