Sarah Osei

Architect in training, London, United Kingdom

What inspired you to want a life in Architecture and the creative industries?:
Designing homes for working class and underrepresented communties and the need for more public housing in London has always drived my passion for architecture.

Who inspired you in finding your path to Architecture/Film and the creative industries?:

So many people have inspired me in my journey towards architecture, but I’m particularly inspired by all the collectives who are working with young people right now. The likes of poor collective, 948 collective and resolve collective and Next Generation Architecture are changing the narrative and it’s so inspiring to see.

How you unlock obstacles and overcome bias in your work?:
Speaking to likeminded people and sharing your obstacles with others. I think it’s important to share issues with others because it’s very likely they’ll be feeling the same or at least have had similar experiences.

What improvements do you feel are required to promote effective change in the academic and working environment?:
Inclusitivity in all sense of the word and listening to different voices. Be inclusive to muted voices and allow people who often do not speak to speak. There’s so much knowledge and I do not believe that one way of thinking can make effective change. Listening to people with different lived experiences is so important. With those new knowledges in mind it’s also important to take action.
