Malkit Shoshan studied architecture and urban planning at the IUAV (Venice, Italy) and at the Technion (Haifa, Israel). She is the founder of the Amsterdam based architectural think-tank FAST, the Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory. Her work explores and highlights the relations between architecture, politics and human rights.

In the past year, as a research-fellow at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, she developed the long-term research ‘Drones and Honeycombs’, a study of the contemporary architecture and landscape of war and peace. It included the intervention ’Design for Legacy’; the seminars ‘Drone Salon’ and ‘Missions and Missionaries’, and the installations ‘2014-1914: The view from above’. She is a member of the editorial board of Footprint, the TU Delft Architecture Theory Journal.
