A self motivated, diligent and innovative architecture professional, I enjoy evaluating design solutions and new technologies. Being an avid traveller with an ardent desire to learn about different cultures and art in its various forms has helped me think beyond the normal. With the skills I gained during my academic and professional experience, coupled with an enthusiastic and goal-oriented mind set, I wish to continue to apply my interests and highly targeted background to the field of architecture and design.

project title -- Common Ground
project description -- To achieve sustainable urban development in Itaquera, the city must develop an
open space network that spatially integrates economic, cultural and ecological
To be successful, the institutional and technical hub proposal of Itaquera
requires urban intensification. This entails increasing the density of the site by
utilizing the existing programmatic anchors and adjacent neighborhood urban
fabric to create COMMON GROUND - a new armature that provides for housing
and mixed-use buildings within the site.
COMMON GROUND is conceived as a dynamic infrastructure that can change
over time based on organic public uses and private incremental growth of
programs surrounding it. In public/private partnership fashion, the sale of extra
private development spurs additional and new public space growth.

THESIS PROJECT --- December 2010 - May 2011

LIGHT is more than just a mere FUNCTIONAL TOOL. It is a language by itself. It has the power to form a SPACE, to ALTER PERCEPTIONS , to create an EXPERIENCE.

Natural light should be celebrated in Architecture. It provides for a better understanding and perception of the space. Such principles of light are best translated into buildings such as museums, galleries, exhibition spaces, performing spaces, retail spaces etc. where there is a subject to be studied, and the viewer is able to connect with the subject.
The design will
- Celebrate lighting in architecture
- Act as an urban hub for cultural activities, that could be used by the people within the site and the general public.
- Act as an awareness and knowledge centre of art and its forms.
