ABOUT

Daleen Saah is a designer and urban planner based in Los Angeles, CA.


Daleen seeks to produce work that investigates the socio, political, and cultural impacts of the built environment. As a Palestinian-American, she is equally interested in work that reflects Arab image, identity, and representation. Daleen's curatorial and design projects have been an opportunity to connect with artists around the world and amplify their voices through collaborations. She is currently an Art Collective Resident with NAVEL Los Angeles and also serves on the Programing Board for Materials & Applications.

As an urban planner, Daleen focuses on spatial analysis and data story-telling to engage a wide variety of audiences in critical and creative perspective sharing. With Arup, Daleen sat between the Digital Insight team and Integrated Planning team, where her work informed projects such as the California High Speed Rail, New York City's General Plan Update, and the New International Airport for Mexico City, among others. Also at Arup, Daleen actively contributed to the Foresight, Research & Innovation group, researching and creating material to align client work with the anticipated and imagined future world. Now with her own studio called Future Form, Daleen continues to build complex yet accessible data stories within masterplanning, smart city initiatives, and GIS environmental analysis.
