Henna is an architectural researcher and designer who is currently based in London. Her primary interests lie in sustainable design, particularly design interventions that work alongside and support the growth of local ecologies and communities.
She graduated in 2018 with a First-Class Honours degree in Architecture from The University of Brighton, where her final thesis project was shortlisted for the SoAD Award for Sustainability and the BBM Award for Circular Design. Henna has since acquired two years of experience as an architectural assistant, working predominantly on large scale public sector projects for NHS England.
During her first year at the RCA, with ADS3, her project titled A Downstream Effect looked into the consequences of penicillin pollution in Norfolk. Her research proposal was supported by her written thesis, a study of architectural methodology in spaces designed to support ones health, wellbeing and recovery.
This year, her work is focused on the remote crofting communities on the Hebridean island of Colonsay.
