Columbus, OH, US



I recently graduated from  the Ohio State University's Knowlton School of Architecture with a Master of Architecture professional degree; I have also earned a Bachelor's degree in Architecture from India and hold an Architectural License from the Council of Architecture, New Delhi, India. I have two years of field experience, simultaneous experience in teaching and research, as well as a six-month undergraduate internship experience.

Currently working on the Venice Biennale exhibition, "Common Ground",  for the Architecture Biennale 2012, I enjoy theoretical discussions in criticality, post criticality, the ground, the field, partial affective narratives, and figurative notations.

And yes, I can write well.
