To share news and press kits: [email protected] --- I am an architect, writer and researcher. I have a Master's degree in Situated Practice from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. Public housing and the housing market are central to my research, demonstrated through site-specific practices, specifically in and around Vauxhall, Elephant & Castle and Nine Elms in South London and Canary Wharf, Hackney and Stratford in East London. I have mapped out a series of audio-visual walking tours collectively called, Live the Life you have Always Imagined and collaborated on installations such as Nothing to Hear Here in Hackney Wick and Bradenham. I work as an Editor for World Architecture Community, Editor for Architecture, Time, Space & People and Editor in Chief for Eunoia. My interest lies in the intersection of architecture and journalism.
