    Leila Araghian is an Iranian architect, born in 1983–1984. She has a Master of Architecture degree from the University of British Columbia, where she won the UBC Architecture Alumni Henry Elder Prize. She previously studied architecture in Iran, at Shahid Beheshti University.

    In 2005, Araghian co-founded Diba Tensile Architecture, a company specialising in the design, manufacture and installation of membrane structures. She was chief architect and designer of the Tabiat Bridge in Tehran, a pedestrian bridge opened in late 2014; the Bridge has won several prizes, including the Popular Choice award in the Highways & Bridges category of Architizer''s 2015 A+ Awards.

    Araghian''s Iranian heritage has restricted her international exposure. She was not allowed to enter the World Architecture Festival because of sanctions against Iran.
