Raafat Majzoub was born in Tripoli in 1986. After acquiring an Architecture degree from the American University of Beirut in 2009, he founded his narrative design studio, +236m3. Through his studio, he published his debut novel, Fetish Systems, and a zine, ThePurple Haut-Parleur. His projects also include the design and construction of residential and commercial spaces in Lebanon and Amman. In parallel, Majzoub worked on several projects with colorblind, a branding and strategic planning think-tank. He co- founded The Outpost magazine with Ibrahim Nehme, and is the Creative Director of the publication. Majzoub also authors the literary supplements in each issue. He is currently working on his new novel, The Perfumed Garden. The novel is a weave of reality and processed non-fiction. Its narrative feeds from the tension between the human-scale perception of contemporary Arabia and its canons of identity through a series of projects of Induced Reality.
