‘The typology of housing is a construct’: Interview with Cany Ash

How can housing offer residents a sense of agency?

Following the judging for the 2016 AR Housing Awards, we asked our judges how they, through their own projects, explored and worked with the type. In this video, Cany Ash of Ash Sakula discusses how their most renowned housing projects provide moments that offer residents a sense of agency and ownership, an ongoing theme in the practice’s work.

The AR Housing award was launched to seek out the best housing projects constructed within the last five years – from social and public/private to private schemes, from micro-scale to large-scale projects, from housing complexes to student residences to apartment blocks.
