About 

In today’s world of innovation and radical thinking, Architecture and design has opened up to even more interpretations and connotations . In this rapidly changing notion of design I would describe myself as the one of the agents of change . I believe architecture can be understood in other ways than just plan, elevations and sections. Throughout my education I have tried to leap the bounds of what i have been taught by the institution and aimed to achieve alternative representation techniques to architecture and design. Detail - driven and systematic in approach I believe design is not only meeting the needs of the target audience but also , discovering yourself.
