A Forum About New Trajectories in Residential Architecture.
Cany Ash studied at the University of Cambridge and the University of Westminster. She co-founded Ash Sakula Architects with Robert Sakula in 1994 to pursue cross-funded, culturally rooted urban development projects, working with communities, arts organizations, enlightened developers and public bodies. Previously she lived and worked as an architect and urban activist in London, Berlin and New York, where she helped pioneer the world’s first farmers’ market.
Ash runs Adaptable Neighbourhoods, a strand of Ash Sakula that researches the ingredients of great neighbourhoods. Often self-initiated, these projects investigate the opportunities to base development strategies on existing local networks, the potential of existing structures and the design of meaningful public space. Ash is a RIBA Research Awards Panel member, an external examiner to the Narrative Environments course at Central Saint Martins School of Art, and a member of the Design South East Design Review Panel.
