I believe that architecture not only deals with buildings, but with its immediate surroundings and the city as a whole. I realized and learned about the interaction between a building and its surroundings while doing my Masters in City Planning. Working on my Master of Architecture Thesis Revitalization of Burnet Avenue, Avondale neighborhood, Cincinnati, has given me a good understanding of the concept of a Sustainable City. The thesis has provided me with a learning experience of emerging concepts of New Urbanism and precedents of infill affordable housing projects in the US.
My professional experience at WDG Architecture at Washington, D.C. gave me a great opportunity to work on Construction documents and assist in Construction Administration; this let me enhance my technical knowledge on building construction and structural concepts, specifications, materials and code research. My spring and summer 2006 internships at Perkins Eastman Architects at New York increased my understanding of urban design concepts and technical details of architectural working drawings. At Urban Space Consultants at Delhi, I worked on schematic design development, LEED Documentation and Landscape co-ordination for a Resort and Senior Living in Dehradun. I got an opportunity to interact with international consultants as Perkins Eastman (New York), EEA (Spain), P Landscape (Thailand) and B LIT (Thailand). Presently I am working at RSA R204 Architects LLP, Delhi on Master Plan development for an Industrial Park (app. 500 acres) in Patiala and a residential project (consisting of 390 dwelling units) in Gurgaon.
I am keen to work on Contemporary Sustainable Architectural & Urban Design projects, which create intelligent buildings, and a livable neighborhood.
