Ushma Thakrar

Before joining the Architectural Association as a Masters’ candidate in the History and Critical Thinking in Architecture programme, Ushma studied both architecture and urban theory in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. She has worked broadly in publications, non-profits, research teams and galleries concerned with the built environment. Ushma’s research focuses on the ways in which architecture and urban planning are employed to encourage or reproduce social and cultural behaviours. Her interest in the physical space as an administrative apparatus was highlighted in her recent dissertation Back to the City, the Suburbs and the Kitchen which considered the implications of progressive trends in residential settlement on the development of the feminist consciousness.
