Having finished her undergraduate degree at the Bartlett, UCL, Ashley worked in Hong Kong designing social housing for a not-for-profit organisation, before moving back to work on further housing projects at a co-operative practice in London. At the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Ashley spent time researching the topic of ‘Urbanism and Societal Change’ while fabricating several large scale installations internationally. She returned to the Bartlett to complete her Masters in 2016, where she continued her work in fabrication, collaborating with fellow students to build the ‘Ghost Chapel’, in Galway. The project was exhibited at Galway International Arts Festival and will be part of Galway 2020. She has taught at Universities in Hong Kong and Liverpool and led a number of summer schools at The Bartlett. Having graduated in 2018, Ashley combines a research-based focus in how architecture can become part of the way we approach growing societal issues alongside investigations into fabrication techniques.
