academic works

this portfolio is a collection of all original works - produced by myself during my formal training in architecture at krvia, my alma mater, and later as a working professional. i most ardently hope that in the following pages, my abilities to conceive and idea/solution, take it from imagination and conceptualization to realization and the ability to successfully convey them through an architectural language that i believe is unique to myself, shall be evident.

it has been an intensive yet joyous experience of evolution during the last six years as an architect, a designer and importantly, as a thinking individual. with a hope of steadily continuing this growth, i humbly invite you to have a look at the portfolio, a glimpse of what is just the beginning of my journey in architecture.

‘if high-style architects are not producing what people want or need, who is, and what can we learn from them?’ (denise scott brown, 1971)

popular culture grows in-situ in the city and cannot be seen in land-use maps. they are our context and we need to keep our senses open to respond to them. this dissertation is an architectural attempt to respond to this.

in this project, the architectural vocabulary is a collection of urban archetypes that one might encounter in everyday life. bridges, ramps, gateways and so on, that may be suggestive of being backdrops to popular dance in bollywood. it is an attempt to bring together such urban elements to form a theatrical set as a backdrop to this public space for the city.

(ref. mandoo) the first space is an island-deck where ar rahman finds himself some peace in isolation and his favourite piano. a flight of steps lead to a lower level which has his outdoor meeting space and a workshop where he collaborates with other atrists. the public space is an open-air theatre where young talents are encouraged to per form.
