Shahad Alazzaz, founder of Azaz Architects, was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to famous journalist and photographer, Saleh Alazzaz. In 2007, Alazzaz graduated from highschool, ranking amongst the top 3 graduates in the Najd region of the kingdom. She earned a BA in Architecture from the University of Manchester and a MA in Architectural Design and Project Management from IE Business School in Madrid. Her career in the industry took off as she joined a Spanish firm as a summer intern, but was quickly appointed to manage projects she brought in from the Middle East. With a continuously growing passion for the job and unresting ambition, Alazzaz is responsible for projects that span from residential spaces to massive judicial projects. The Architect's new venture is described as a continuation of the design process, but with a different philosophy.
