Dinah is a Senior Lecturer at University of East London and a co-founder of ZCD Architects in Hackney. Dinah’s report, ‘Housing Design for Community Life’ is published this month.
Part of its focus is on children, unaccompanied play and independent mobility. With in-depth observational research it answers a call for the built environment to better support the UN Convention’s right of the child to play and provides evidence and urban design principles for developers, designers and practitioners. ZCD Architects apply research to architecture and urban design projects.
