Chen Zhan is an architect, anthropologist, and independent filmmaker. Holding a master’s in anthropology from SOAS University of London, Chen’s research develops a critical analysis of future-making at the intersection between design, material culture and consumerism. Situated in the approach of visual anthropology, Chen’s film practice focuses on the socio-political struggles of the marginalised through the lens of the everyday. Her short documentary, Ahmad, tells the story of a Lebanese asylum seeker who rebuilds his life through cooking and food-sharing with Londoners. Ahmad premiered at the London International Documentary Festival (2019). As an architect trained at the Architectural Association, Chen previously worked at Heatherwick Studio on projects across scales and sectors internationally. She dedicated three years to the realisation of Maggie’s Cancer Care Centre in Leeds, which received multiple awards in honour of its architectural design.
