A diligent researcher, I document all of the findings and publish the same for greater visibility and record.


Having Conducted workshops for a batch of 40 students under Tensile Architecture, it ranged from Soap film models with first year students to 1 :1 scale fabric installations with Third year students.
Trained in Hindustani Classical singing, has influenced many of my designs.
A hands on & experimental model maker, I prefer to explore my design potentials through detailed models, much before developing execution drawings.
