ARCHITECT | TRANSITION DESIGNER | DESIGN RESEARCHER 

Glenn Murcutt, in his acceptance speech for “The Pritzker Architecture Prize” in 2002 said:

“I have always believed in the act of discovery rather than creativity. Any work that exists, or which has the potential to exist, is related to discovery. We do not create the work. I believe we, in fact, are discoverers”. 

This quote resonates with me. I think that being a discoverer means being aware of the unfolding of the world around, being curious to observe and to question, notice the stories going on around, engage all senses to perceive the surroundings and having an extended sense of wonder, to create intimate dialogues leading to a desire to influence these immediate and mediated surroundings. Currently, pursuing my MDes-PhD in Reimagining Transitions at Srishti Manipal Institute of Art, Design & Technology, Bangalore, my research works and interests as a transition designer lies at an intersection of heritage, technology and future making. To me heritage conservation and preservation practices can be intimately concerned with assembling, building, and designing future worlds, it can be for future orientation. Thus, as a transition designer I thrive for creating this heritage pluriverse as an alternative to cater the currently prevailing environmental and socio-cultural issues.
