Where are they now?

They are a powerful designing duo with international recognition – and it all began here at Carleton University. Brothers Karim and Hani Rashid have taken their talents to the big time – both crediting Carleton as the place where they got their start.

The elder of the two, Hani, graduated from Carleton’s Bachelor of Architecture program in 1983. He and his wife and fellow Carleton architecture graduate, Lise Anne Couture (B.Arch./83), run Asymptote Architecture in New York. Among many successful projects, Asymptote was responsible for the design of the Los Angeles West Coast Gateway and a major theatre structure in Denmark. Rashid has taught architectural design at Harvard, and is currently an adjunct professor of architecture at Columbia University.

Younger brother Karim graduated from Carleton’s School of Industrial Design in 1982, and since then has left his creative autograph on items he has designed for corporations such as Prada, Estee Lauder, Sony, and Umbra.

With an education founded at Carleton and talent overflowing, these brothers have designed their way to international success and recognition.
