Through private practice and teaching, Lahoud explores the disputed, confliced and often paradoxical transformation of cities. His research work is focused on architecture and urbanism in the global south.

Often writing on climate change and colonialism, Lahoud is developing work on anthropological understandings of shelter and dwelling. His doctoral dissertation, The Problem of Scale: The City, the Territory, the Planetary, explores how spatial problems are structured using the concept of scale.
