Born and raised in Jeddah, Abdulrahman Gazzaz holds a Bachelor’s degree in architecture & planning from The University of the West of England in Bristol, UK. Gazzaz has since expanded his practice and showcased his work at Athr Gallery, Alserkal Avenue, Saudi Art Council’s 21,39 Jeddah Arts exhibition, and was selected as a visual arts/ architectural resident artist in Cite des Arts, Paris. In 2018, he designed and developed the first National Saudi Pavilion at the 16th Venice Biennale as well as created the inaugural design commission for Alserkal Avenue ‘Absolem’ in 2019. Gazzaz has previously been invited as a speaker at Somerset House as part of the London Design Biennial, Expo 2020, and Ithra.
In 2015, Abdulrahman and his brother Turki founded Bricklab, a concept development studio in Jeddah. Bricklab is dedicated to the examination of the design discipline as it intersects with the social, political, economic, and cultural networks that implicitly form the built environment around us.
