Architecture and Urban Design go hand in hand thus my efforts are to bind them into one setting. It is about building environment for people who experience it. Designing space is about beauty of embedding emotions of people using it, space where they cry, laugh, relax, enjoy.......

I have always looked forward to refine myself as an architect, urban designer and as an individual. Exposure to academic as well as professional working have fostered me to learn array of designing technique/tools and am very much interested in new opportunities for the same. I am compatible and enjoy working in collaboration for both academic as well as professional setting.
