Selina is an architect, tutor and curator, who has been practicing architecture in Africa and Europe.
Selina joined Douglas Murphy and Andrea Zanderigo to teach ADS1 in 2020. The studio investigates intellectual and cultural ideas through the medium of the architectural project.
Selina studied architecture at the ENSAP Bordeaux, the EPF Lausanne and holds a Master of Science in Architecture from the University of Stuttgart.

Throughout her studies and professional career, Selina has been interested in vernacular architecture and, in particular, the use of local and renewable natural building materials and responsible design strategies.
Selina most recently worked at Sanchez Benton architects from 2018–20, working across all work stages on a broad mix of projects with a social, poetic and architectural ambition.
