Noura Philip Bishay

Master of Architecture 4+2, 2017

What was your favorite aspect of attending NewSchool?

My favorite aspect was the relationship that was built between me and my professors – how they were great and humble. They believed in me when I couldn’t believe in myself.

What projects are you currently working on?

Chollas Creek – designing a natural look and adding a bike trail.

What has been your biggest career accomplishment?

My biggest career accomplishment is my thesis: The Green Network: Park-to-Bay Project. It’s a study that I believe will be implemented soon. The thesis has won the SDAPA Academic Award 2018. I have also successfully presented the project to three Community Planning Groups: Barrio Logan, Southeastern San Diego, and Golden Hill. In addition, I have presented to the Mayor’s office and the Port of San Diego. I will keep presenting it till we do it.
