I’m Syamin and I passionately believe in inclusivity and socially responsive architecture. Through Praxxis in MSA, I’ve learnt about ‘intersectionality’ and that feminism extends more than just fighting for women's right. I aspire to one day become an architect who values the community and diversity through her design. When I’m not in my working mode, I always find time to cook and my weekends are always spent trying new recipes. I also enjoy traveling, as I believe it helps broaden horizons and encourages positive feelings.

Commoners is a family friendly, intergenerational housing co-op in South Manchester. We are working with Union Chapel in Fallowfield - it is on a piece of land owned by them, adjacent to the church, that we hope to build. We aim to use renewable energy technologies, like solar panels and the standards of Passive House.

In addition, we hope to reduce the energy costs of the community by recycling energy in a way that will no longer be the preserve of the wealthy, but will also allow people on low incomes to move into the community, while also achieving an environmentally friendly goal.
