Arman  Nouri


I am a cultural worker designing and delivering projects across the built environment, cultural and public sectors. Focused on the role of civic infrastructures and cultural production in community and neighbourhood development, my work encourages people to gather, exchange and collaborate in pursuit of spatial and social justice.

I currently lead the Mayor of London’s Culture & Community Spaces at Risk programme, which is in partnership with MA Cities. I am also a co-founder of Kin Structures - a multi-disciplinary studio redesigning civic infrastructure for the 21st century. The studio promotes collaborative approaches to building a just future using art, culture and architecture. I am also a host of The Open City Podcast, an advisor to Theatrum Mundi, a Public Practice alumnus and a member of music crew Houseplants.
