Miss Nana Biamah-Ofosu


I am a qualified architect, educator, researcher, writer and director of London based YAA Projects, an architecture, design and research practice interested in making, speaking and writing architecture. I have taught and lectured widely in the U.K and abroad. My research interests include questions on African modernity and its architecture and urbanism, communality, domesticity, identity and geography. I am currently researching the African compound house as a communal housing typology with a forthcoming publication due in 2023. As a writer and critic, I have contributed to leading architecture and design journals and publications, engaging with leading practitioners in contemporary practice. I am also a Kingston School of Art alumnus, having gained Part 1 (BA Hons) and Part 2 (MArch) qualifications here.
