Parisa Shahnooshi

BA (Hons) + MArch

Parisa is a British Iranian designer with a passion for poetry, Persian miniature painting and carpet weaving. This can be seen in her recently published Masters project in Blueprint Magazine titled ‘Vertical Gardens of Persia’ speaking on the topic of mythology of Persia. The Persian carpet not only behaved as an architectural device, but through patterns, motifs, colour, and geometry it helped the traveller navigate the historic landscape. Parisa continues to weave her interest into discovering the hidden stories that are found in our daily lives. These small-scale interventions are what challenges our cultural perspective. Alongside practice, she is a Postgraduate Mentor for Unit 12 at University of Greenwich giving back to young designers of tomorrow through knowledge sharing, guidance and skills.
