Hi there! I’m an Architecture student and a cyclist based in Pune, India. I love image in all elds, and I never stop searching for new styles and forms of self expression to improve my skills. I love adventures and travelling, making experiences and being constantly inspired by new things and new people.
Hands-on workshop of membrane & bamboo construction
[Architectural Design, Third Semester]
It is a self supporting structure with three pronged shape which creates a curving canopy. The exterior shell comprises of bre reinforced plastic. Exterior shell has been xed to panels of black mirror polished stainless steel using steel brackets. The stainless steel panels are individually curved to produce an internal surface that creates distorted reections.

[Architectural Design, Fifth Semester] The project of creating and designing an extension to the existing Jaykar Library is a journey which is more meaningful than putting into place brick and mortar. The challenge of the project lies in creating a space where people can interact and share knowledge apart from just reading books. The design of the library is conceptualized as juxtaposition of the ‘contemporary’- extension block with the ‘history’- existing block. Factor of focus was on creating the drama between the built form and its visitors, using colors as an asset to readers, self sustainibilty and convinience of phisically challenged people.

The natural thermal dynamics of open-at-top architecture round space uses no external energy to circulate temperature. The acoustics of round space can be out of this world. The curve softens the sound inside the pod making it the perfect place for socializing and listing to. Sound waves dissipate as the wrap around the pod, shielding the interior from loud outside noise. Research has also found out that there are spiritual and emotional beneď€ ts to the shape.

Cluster Typology II GROUNDFLOOR PLAN
The HABITAT project called for â€˜Addressing comprehensive transformation of existing areas in Cantonmentâ€™, where we had to study in detail the existing housing along with the surrounding development of around 32 acres. After a detail study, the project area of around 48000 sq m was selected, where we had to evolve a design program for affordable housing. The design program had to accommodate the existing 520 units & proposed additional 260 along with allocating spaces for a large playground, amenity plots, open spaces & commercial spaces The studio had clear 3 stages: A) Study & analysis of the existing condition & defining the design program B) Master planning exercise for overall 32 acres of area of Solapur Bazar C) Design of the housing in the area identified for existing & proposed housing.

Building Material & Technology has exposed me to the variety of materials available, their properties, functions, market rates etc. As an architectural subject, it is the base for my professional practice ahead. On site working with labourers, dealing with the quality and quantity of materials used for construction, joinery details has brought me closer to the real world execution of a project. Exploring the new details using timber, steel, bamboo and concrete are the major materials I have explored in my academic years.

Chokhani Haveli Mandawa [R.S.P., Fourth Semester]
Mandawa has been referred to as the ‘open art gallery’ of Rajasthan because the entire region is dotted with magnicent architecture and fascinating mansions (havelis) that have lavishly painted walls. (Sectional isometric view of the haveli is self hand draughted)

Relative Study Program is a eld survey and architectural documentation of structures or city fabric and its settlement.
1 This workshop was a 3 days academic workshop to explore bamboo as an building material. The structure comprised of 5 typical module array of bamboo truss framework joint with mesh fabric. These were then intervened with rope stays forming the single module array. These 5 module arrays were then braced with the bamboo ring beam at the top transferring the load to the central main column, thus making the structure stable. We learnt the bending and splitting of bamboo and the joinery details. We explored the elastic properties of bamboo.

2 This was a 3 days academic workshop with an intention to create a cantilever bamboo structure on a existing R.C.C. retaining wall. The base comprised of a core. These core bamboos were nailed and tightened in the steel base plate. This structure was mainly deigned for aesthetic purpose. The bamboos were attached with the 2 mm thick steel rod. The cantilever end of the bamboo was nailed to the high tension steel wire which was attached to the ground on the opposite end passing through the core.
Astitva [During Fourth Semester]
There is certain amount of humor that has been created in today’s society. It is not just riff and raff that live in but the stage is much wider behind the backdrop. There being the ‘real heroes’. These stalwarts are the chain to the cycle of our society. The cycle moves forward only when the chain grinds itself. Our effort in making ‘Astitva’ is to bring up the awakening among the masses about the supporting class which works its veins day and night in making the society a better pace to live in. The humor is that the privileged are un-awakened and the supporters cannot sleep. Their existence is somewhere lost!
In 2011, I set up a social service group with an intention to serve those people who are otherwise shooed away from the society, people who are abandoned on foot paths. It has been 6 years and the journey has not only made me realize the grievances of the homeless, but has also moulded me in a sensitive human. We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and un-cared for is the greatest poverty. I look forward to serve more love, care and happiness.

Ofce Renovation [During Fifth Semester]
In my III year, I designed and executed the renovation of 23 year old commercial space. Under the complete renovation scheme, I was asked to design the cabin. With few structural changes, design of cabin with a trapezoidal plan was interesting. I introduced the feature brick wall with circular opening as a skin between the entrance of ofce and the cabin. Working with amateur labourers to construct the circular opening was an informative task.
As a curious architecture student, in my III year, I designed and executed the renovation of my 40 year old house. This experience has built in condence and put forth the facts of the transformation from paper into reality for me. The dealing with labourers, communicating with them in the local language, making them grasp an architect's perspective are the challenges faced which made me understand the gap between architectural education and real execution. This was an experience of intense detailing. This signies considering of minor details in order to design a space for everyone.
Residence Renovation [During Sixth & Seventh Semester]
EXPERIENCE ABSORB TRANSLATE When many sounds are heard at once, decipher the one that is most quiet and gentle. Pune Biennale, a vibrant art festival that is making its presence felt on the international art map. It promises to be a spectacular event in the public art domain, re-imagining spaces for creative expression in the city, thereby making art more accessible, and offering a platform for artists to engage with the cityâ€™s population.
The river houses various moods that go unnoticed throughout the day. These moods are majorly activity-driven and give our river her own identity. For every person the meaning of the river varies. Everyone has some or the other way in which they connect with the river. Various sounds govern the ambience of the chosen stretch. Some are prominent; whereas some go unnoticed. The idea was to create a moodscape taking all the categories of sound into consideration.
Generally the sense of vision is what dominates our perception. But visiting Mutha, it could be seen through a different lens to be captured through soundscapes. Soundscape is a sound or combination of sounds that forms or arises from an impressive environment.
Using this unique form of expression, we presented our interpretation of moods of our river Mutha by the mode of soundtrippin.

GUJARAT SIKKIM & NORTHERN WEST BENGAL KERALA In 2014, I initiated a cycling campaign 'From Free India to Green India' with a vision to cycle every state of India and to spread awareness about an environment friendly India. I encourage students by visiting schools and localities by arranging cycle rides and tree planting to adapt the ecological culture. The diverse culture, the architecture and community living of different states has always got me jaw dropped. I embarked this journey along 4 states covering 4422 km till date.
