In contemporary times, architecture must play with the technology of light as well as its feelings.
Light has always been central to architecture. it needs to be understood and worked with, especially in today's times where technology of light and tactility of the materials give us endless possibilities.
The argument therefore is to bring this dialogue between the two evolving realms of design and engineering on a public forum and thereby bring the sensitivity and intelligence of it all for smart sustainable solution.
A brief about the speaker
Sourabh Gupta graduated in architecture, magna cum laude from the esteemed from School of Architecture, CEPT University at Ahmedabad in India. With the insight provided there by the best in the realm of architecture, coupled with a stint in urban design from the acclaimed TU delft, The Netherlands and most importantly, propelled by a compulsive need to travel, explore and design, Sourabh conceptualized studio Archohm.
Archohm’s portfolio has a stimulating mix of typologies, scales and sectors of architectural works, infrastructure, furniture and product design, design research and system design. The studio’s inter-disciplinary nature attracts an eclectic mix of people from backgrounds in architecture, urban design, product design and even fashion design, to induce a novel and unconventional flavour, character and a perspective to design.
Sourabh’s continued mentoring of archohm initiatives such as the archoforum (workshops with iconic firms), the archotour (the intense ten day annual expedition to design destinations) and the archohmeter (the periodic design newsletter) speaks of his genuine desire to indulge the design community, the academic fraternity and the industry in meaningful dialogues and form global collaborations.
He is the recipient of many prestigious awards and accolades in almost all spheres of his works. Believing in living ‘life through design’, Sourabh is a discerning ‘wanderer’ and on a perpetual design expedition.
