Hi! My portfolio here gives a brief review of my work, both in the academic and professional environment. The portfolio begins to talk about two of my works, both done at the graduate level. Followed by a project done at undraguate level. Then a new chapter gives a brief insight of my work done as an intern.

Green High Rise Niagara Falls, ON

Name: Green High Rise Location: Niagra Falls, ON, Canada This project was a aprt of my graduate level studio. I wanted to incorporate more than photo voltaic panels on my roof. I wanted to look at more ways of harenessing and producing energy to balance out energy needs of high rise structure as much possible.

Name: Crowd-sourcing the city: Bike-Hike Location: Manhattan, NY

This was a project done in my final semester of graduate studio. The topic of the studio was crowd-sourcing the city, where we had to gather information from the crowd and give our design solution back to them. Hence while surveying New Yorkers and studying the New York city, I decided to use the blank walls of the city and design around them.

When surveying and interviewing new Yorkers, three major problems where identified: a) Bike parking b) Cars in the bike lanes c) Pedestrian-bike crashes The three problems were a major concern in NYC and were the top reasons for ‘not using the bike’ in the city.

Concept: To promote bike usage and make use of unutilized spaces

National Soccer Stadium Doha, Qatar


Stadia are the new cathedrals of our age, where communities come together with common purpose and depart with memories shared and stories to tell of the legends born 19


Name of the project: National Soccer Stadium Location: Doha, Qatar

Proposing Authority: Qatar Football Association Site Area: 90 Acre

This project was done in my tenth semester of five year Architecture degree. We had to choose our projects. I chose this, as I was always curios about the spatial arrangements of the empowering stadiums. They always fascinated me due the fact that stadiums is just one single structure and it handles people of different hierarchy. I was all the more amused when I did my case studies and actually had a chance to see the VIP area of the stadiums, the lavish restaurants, the suites, etc. I put my heart and soul into this project and I know I am capable of something even better than this.

The North-South orientation of the stadium is chosen, keeping in mind the wind direction, sun path and the hot climatic conditions of the place.

Firm: Skidmore Ownings and Merrill, New York Time period: June 2010- August 2010 Projects Worked on: Al Rajhi Bank Headquarters, Riyadh, KSA Jeddah Cornich, Jeddha, KSA Qingdao, China LG headquarters, New Jersey, USA I interned with SOM in the year 2010 for a period of 11 weeks with the team headed by Mr. Aybars Asci. I worked initially on the production of renderings and producing presentation drawings for the competition project Qingdao. I then worked on the making of study models for Al Rajhi Bank Headquarters. Later I worked on the renderings and presentation drawings of Jeddah Cornich Tower. The last part of my internship was the LG headquarters project. I worked on the it from the conceptual stage to the initial design development of the project (Site plan, parking layout and furniture arrangements).

I worked with SOM in the year 2008 for a period of 6 weeks with the team headed by Mr. Aybars Asci. I worked initially on the preparation of study models of QPCP and Al Sharaq Tower, Dubai for about two to three weeks. Later I worked on the plans and sections of the Al Sharaq Tower, making changes with respect to the internal walls of individual housing units. I helped the team in preparing presentations for the meetings. Floor Plan, Al Sharaq Tower
