Anupama is an architect and sustainability advocate with over two decades of experience in projects design and advisory. Her work is informed by her belief that the best design solutions are a function of the dialogue between innovation and tradition, grounded in functional realism while incorporating new interventions in the regional environments. Parallel to her professional work she has also been engaged in teaching and mentoring.
Her interest in alternative development and planning shaped her professional trajectory into areas of low energy design, alternate building technologies, heritage and context sensitive design. Her early work as a partner in Anupama & Rajeev Associates, reflects this engagement with designs based on translation of regional architecture and several experimental projects.
She has served as a visiting faculty at several national and international architectural colleges including at the Canadian University Dubai, Amity University Dubai, the School of Planning & Architecture and ANSAL University Delhi. Several of her projects have been published.
