I'm Karan Pashine, a recent graduate from the University of California, Los Angeles, in Architecture and Urban Design. Preceding this is my five-year 'Bachelors of Architecture' degree from the National Institute of Technology Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India; and a three-year work experience.

For my masters at Ozel SUPRASTUDIO, I have worked on the intersection of emerging technologies and architecture. Starting off with a completely digital approach, we ended the final quarter with a dynamic cyber-physical architectural system. 

Previously, I worked with Nashine Associates, a firm based in central India, on projects from all backgrounds, majorly the Hospitality sector. During my time there, I have worked on all stages of a project from ideation to completion. It has helped me understand and perform in an official space, collaborating with different teams in the field, as well as collectively working within many such teams.

Through Bachelors, Masters and work experience, I have worked with a wide range of softwares, including BIM (ArchiCAD, Revit), digital modelling, algorithmic design and animation (Rhino+Grasshopper, Maya, Houdini), rendering (Lumion, V-Ray). My masters allowed me to explore the AR and VR devices, for which we developed content in Unity and had live connections to the physical model (using Arduino circuits) and the digital model (using Rhino+Grasshopper). The detailed information about my graduate school projects, mostly presented as videos and animations, can be viewed on my website:
