we are passionate about

The environment and its sustainability. And this is mirrored in the collaborative, inclusive and participative work at architecture t, as we design, build, work with community and experience the spaces we create. Simplicity, contemporary, minimalist, hands-on, interactive and an intimacy with nature are tenets we try to adopt in all our work.

 

collaborations

team

My tryst with collaborations first began in 2000 and the model was simple and straight forward: professional integrity, circular leadership and equitability! With my recent plunge into mentoring college students, social architecture and community work and the move to a larger and more central work space, I have been able to experiment with the next level of professionalism- collaborations, delegation and cooperative leadership, giving me the needed space to devote to more passions! My travel experiences across the globe and work opportunities with the local community have also taught me two important lessons that I’m currently experimenting with and enjoying the benefits of :  1. the art of delegation and 2. Cooperative leadership.

Tallulah is passionate about architecture, sustainability, vernacular building systems, ecology and Goa. Social and environmental issues are close to her heart. With her head bursting with ideas, she loves design and build, cost effective construction, entrepreneurship, citizen initiatives, social architecture, writing, mentoring, environment, outdoor learning and is a consummate net-worker and doer. She is a super time manager balancing her passion for architecture, environment, community and raising two kids.

A graphic designer, artist and film maker with a passion for community engagement, Vishal is a maker of things and has been a great support in the college programmes and temporary structures we have recently undertaken. The emergency pontoon boat and social entreperneurship  along St Inez Creek have been possible thanks to Vishal.

Pushpa Vernekar

Meet Pushpa, our housekeeping officer. Thanks to her our work space is in ship shape.

Alilia is the super enthusiastic young architect, recently graduated from Srinivas School of Architecture, Mangalore- Karnataka. She is a keen learner, efficient, excellent at coordination and very patient. She is an asset to our team because of her helpful nature, out of the box thinking and solution oriented reasoning. She is an all rounder with no limitations to adopting new skills. Her curiosity, need to participate and engage with young architects across the country and learn from accomplished architects is something that keeps her connected with the fraternity and invest in self as an architect. 

Aboli works slowly, silently but super meticulously. She is good at thinking unconvertionally but with the full understanding of what convention is. Her experience in Auroville with hands-on building and bonding with earth, her volunteering experience with 'Tahaan' NGO in Pune on rainwater harvesting initiatives and passion for working with children resonates with our work with architecture, education, community and children. She is learning the ropes welland engaging with all aspects of our practice. 

Sachin is our new intern and his responsibilities are essentially drafting, model making, 3 D modelling, site supervision and documentation. He has recently completed his Diploma in AutoCad where he excelled with an A+ . He is a quick learner and excellent team member. He is empathatic and sensitive. He has also participated in many of our community and environmental initiatives. He was selected to participate in an ecology workshop in Wayanad on the biodiversity of the Western Ghats. He loves nature and has also participated in many of the Travelling Dome workshops as a student.
