Hello 🤚 I’m Gracia, a designer and researcher. I apply design-led methodology as an accessible, accountable and emergent process of change. Having worked in Singapore, New York and Cambodia, I enjoy learning and working with diverse groups of people; while centering the voices of those most impacted by design processes. 

Some of my projects include: 🏚️ NYC Community Land Initiative in advocating for Community Land Trusts, 📚 co-designed a flexible library-community space in Sunset Park, 👩‍👧 developed an award-winning transitional housing proposal for single parent-households and a ☁️ critical design project that explores the politicization of public spaces in Singapore 

My current research looks at urban horror and hauntings as forms of political action in Southeast Asia.
