Anupama Kundoo - Material Matters in Architecture


In the wake of unprecedented urbanisation, there is a global concern about depleting resources. Ideas about drawing from local materials and local skills using low-embodied energy are being globally acknowledged as sustainable development directives. While lifestyle trends tend to evolve in a common direction, several issues like geography, climate, local materials and appropriate technology are important concerns in shaping architecture and will always remain site-specific. Join Anupama Kundoo as she presents her work and research, sharing local expressions of global architectural concerns.

Anupama graduated in 1989 from the University of Bombay and practiced as an independent architect in India producing a number of award-winning projects in which sustainable building technologies and infrastructural systems were developed as an integral part of the architecture. She completed her doctoral studies in 2008 at the University of Technology in Berlin, where she has also taught architecture and urban management. She has taught at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London and the University of Technology, Darmstadt.
