This is a past event

Anupama Kundoo founded Pondicherry and Berlin-based Anupama Kundoo Architects in 1990, having worked in the experimental community of Auroville in Southern India. Describing her practice as “research-oriented”, Kundoo works to develop new building technologies that can bring socio-economic benefits and minimal environmental impact.

Kundoo will present her work, while discussing the potential of architecture to engage with and address the complex intersections of urbanisation, people, technologies, resources and environment within the context of growing affordability, not only in money terms.

Her practice is the result of her quest to build appropriately, and considers every project as an opportunity to build knowledge and build community in order to empower people in the process of achieving affordable built spaces.
