Sahra Hersi

Sahra Hersi is an artist and spatial designer, and she describes her work as “caring about people, places, art & architecture, in that order”. Her work is public and ranges in scales from zines, workshops, public realm interventions and buildings.

She seeks to establish a working philosophy that is driven by the desire to reinterpret architectural methodology and artistic narrative as common ground. Her practice explores shared spaces, the public realm, collaboration and community engagement. Her work is often born out of engaging with local communities and the places they occupy.

Sahra works with local authority clients, cultural institutions and third sector organisations across the UK and beyond.

Sahra teaches on BA Design Year 2.
