I recently graduated from TU Delft, Netherlands with Masters degree in Building technology and specialization in Facade engineering. Prior to that, I completed my Architecture Undergraduate studies (BArch.) in 2008 from Sir J. J. College of Architecture, University of Mumbai, India. I am a Registered Architect in India, and I have worked as an intern and continued as an architect over the time span of 30 months with Malik Architecture in Mumbai, India, which is an award-winning practice. Presently I am also assisting Dr. Karel Vollers (free-d technologies) for development of a adjustable mould for double curved glass or concrete.
My masters graduation was about service integrated facade for ‘NEXT Active facades’, which is a collaborative initiative by Alcoa, Somfy and TROX. I worked on an idea of integration of decentralized climate units in facade by assessing feasibility in present market and its application with respect to two refurbishment case studies.
I am an honest, hard working & diligent individual who is extremely passionate about architecture, specially building skins. I am always eager to learn something new. As a team player I get along with my teammates extremely well & also enjoy working alone when responsibilities call for so. I keep my team motivated & enthused whenever we handle a job at hand. I believe in learning & leading by example. As for IT skills, I am proficient in AutoCAD, Rhinoceros, 3Ds Max, Sketchup, Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, Ecotect and an intermediate user of Autodesk revit, Adobe illustrator, Grasshopper, GSA (structural), Dialux (light), Diana (structure), etc.
