About 

I am currently working as an Architectural Designer for TK Architects in Kansas City. Our firm’s focus is entertainment architecture and engineering including cinema, bowling, bars, lounges, food services and entertainment centers. My job as a Junior Architect is to prepare construction documents, present design proposals to clients, negotiate with contractors and attend regular meetings with clients. 

Four years' academic studies at the School of Planning and Architecture, Jawaharlal Nehru Architectural and Fine Arts University, made me realize that architecture is an amalgam of disciplined knowledge and a deep understanding of art, science, technology and humanity, as opposed to being a mere combination of colors and materials, as I had envisaged during high school. Simply put, architecture is the science of construction, which focuses on the wellbeing of the individual users. The academic program dealt with a detailed study of topics like Urban Design, Interior Design, Structural Mechanics, Building Construction, Illumination and Building Services, each no less interesting than the other. I was so enamoured by it all that I spent hours in the studio, and yet managed time for workshops, seminars and conventions.  This juggling of time not only made me efficient, but also had the happy side-effect of making my brainstorming skills and team-working skills better.

As part of my Bachelor of Architecture program, I trained under Architect TL Raja Rao,

founder and proprietor of 'Raja Architects', for 11 months. The training has been a constant barrage of opportunities that have been helping me gain practical awareness that had my classroom program could not afford. I now possess the ability to carry out ready-to-deploy plans, supervise and oversee on-site construction. Because of my committed workmanship, I was quickly promoted from draftsman to designer, and then an active member of the design team at the firm, which helped me master software’s such as AutoCad, Revit, Illustrator, InDesign, 3DS Max, Photoshop, Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. 

As part of STUDIO 804 during the Master of Architecture program at the University of Kansas, a group of 17 students designed and built a sustainable, LEED Platinum house in East Lawrence, Kansas. A holistic approach was taken while the students did all research of affordable and inventive building solutions, designing and the construction of the house. My area of responsibility included interior details, the permitting process and project scheduling.

Thanking you,

Hanu Anand Madireddy.
