Kathmandu, NP



My name is Sagar Chitrakar, a graduate of Architecture from Institute of Engineering at Tribhuwan University in Kathmandu, Nepal. 

After graduation, I have been involved in a number of humanitarian and professionally commissioned projects. As a Volunteer Architect and Graphic Designer in Habitat for Humanity International Nepal’s (HFHIN) annual Everest Build II project, I got my first practical experience with conceptualising and construction. 

After a year at HFHIN, I had the unique opportunity to lead a development project in Kathmandu as Project Coordinator/Designer of Hariyo Chowk, an educational space for sustainable design and urban farming.

In 2013, I started my personal studio BlindManche Studios and have since completed a number of freelance commissions. Then I worked as an Associate Architect in MAP’s Kathmandu office, a design practice based in Washington DC.

Currently, I'm working as an Architect in ABARI
