For the past five years Zarith's work has centered on the intersection of space, advocacy and justice. Since 2013, Zarith has studied the impact of conflict on the built environment. This work has taken her to Bosnia, Croatia, Israel, the West Bank, Jordan, Colombia and throughout the U.S where she has investigated urbicide, spatial justice and resource scarcity. Her work centers on the theory of applied empathy as means to rediscover a shared humanity - an awakening that is crucial in preventing conflict. The body of work depicted in this anthology is simply an exploration of humanity through design.

Zarith attended the Ecole Speciale d'Archicture in Paris as well as Tulane University in New Orleans receiving an M.Arch and B.A. in French in Francophone Studies. M.S. in Architecture and Urban Design from the Graduate School of Planning and Preservation at Columbia University.

Currently Adjunct Associate at Columbia GSAPP and Architectural and Urban Designer at WXY.
