About 

I am a Master of Architecture graduate from Pratt Institute, New York. Prior to my master’s education, I received a Bachelor of Architecture degree in India.

Through my professional and academic experience, I have always been keen to study new models of design, focusing on public infrastructure and the public realm. I have been successfully able to test myself in exploring the design of public architecture through some of my projects such as The Wing, Green Link, Sliver tower and One plaza. Working through these projects I have been able to develop my understanding of how a project responds not just to its program, but how it also shapes the social, political, and communal stratum of the society. 


With a belief in strong design ideology and technical understanding, I have always tried to achieve their intersection as my design foundation. My academic and professional experience from India and USA has helped me to find a common trajectory between the dichotomy of two styles of architecture. I am currently working as a designer at AKT architects in New York city where my duties include involvement in SD, DD and CD for residential projects.
