Takbir Fatima II

Hyderabad, India / Dubai, UAE



I am an architect, educator, and entrepreneur, always on the lookout for projects that challenge me. I'm passionate about interdisciplinary design, design research and exploration, and creating awareness about design. I'm also involved with community-building and education.

I run the interdisciplinary design and experimental architecture studio, DesignAware. I teach a generative design, formfinding and computation workshop, the Fractals Workshop, which has been to various cities in India and the Middle East, as well as all over the world online. I am also a TEDx speaker.
