Ashutosh graduated from the NMIMS School of Architecture in Mumbai. A firm grounding in science helped him better relate to subjects like building materials+structural systems in his undergraduate program. Moreover, a prior work experience in the experimental town of Auroville, India, made him cognizant of the prospects for alternative materials. Ashutosh's greatest joy comes from design experimentation + innovation. Intending to readdress the modus operandi of global construction's material culture, Ashutosh envisions seeking a balance between the 'affordable' and the 'alternative.'
