Abdul Hassan is a designer from London interested in alternative readings of space using a range of media, across a variety of disciplines. During his time at the RCA, Abdul’s work has been driven by exploring how new technologies and traditional tools can re-connect individuals within our increasingly fragmented urban landscape. His second-year project at RCA was centred around the role of material culture in migration and, temporal, intercultural dynamics of the objects.
Prior to the RCA, Abdul completed his undergraduate degree in Architecture at University of Westminster in 2017. Following this, he has worked as a designer at Klein Dytham in Tokyo before returning to London as an architectural assistant in BDP. While there, Abdul worked on various medium and large scale projects including the Palace of Westminster Restoration and Renewal Programme.
