Laila Salti studied art and architecture at the University of Toronto where she graduated with an Honors Bachelor of Arts in 2011. Through her extensive studies, she did a semester abroad in Italy to broaden her architectural horizon and enrolled in a Chair Design and Fabrication course at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) to enhance her creative potential and explore new areas of self-expression. Fruitfully, Laila designed a parametric bench reflecting the terrain of Wadi Rum, Jordan, which is known as the Dune Bench. Upon her graduation, Laila worked as an architectural designer for various firms in Toronto, Canada, specializing in large scale residential towers, mid-rise and estate development from 2011-2014. Laila moved back to Amman, Jordan at the end of 2014 to start her own design firm Salti Pretzel, and is also a practicing architect at maisam architects & engineers.
