Notes NOTES: The PSSHAK was a system of prefabrication devised by Nick Wilkinson and Nabeel Hamdi, based on the writings of the Dutch architect Nicholas Habraken and designed for mass housing. The model was presented to the GLC, who later used it for housing schemes in London at Adelaide Road, Camden and at Stamford Hill, Hackney.
