Sasha Nakitende

Student

Sasha graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 2017 and began working at Simon Bowden Architecture in Soho, London. She assisted the office on cultural and residential projects from RIBA stages 1-4. She created physical models with 3D printers, laser cutters and by hand  and also curated the website and social media pages to organise a day workshop with local schools in Westminster. 

While at the LSA, she worked at DSDHA on a mixed-use development in Belgravia. She learned how research and communication with an existing community can integrate throughout the design process. In the summer of 2019, she developed her skills further in Portugal on a renovation project for Corpo Atelier. 

Her thesis project explores how to make better use of dormant homes in London without excluding an existing community. She believes design innovation can be achieved with an understanding of intersectionality. Her other strong interests are current affairs, sociology, film and literature.
