Design: Talking Practice

with Sachin Ambekar

Part I

This time around I’ll be talking to a former colleague and a dear friend of mine who has co-founded his own architecture & design practice, in Gujarat. We’ll be discussing his time at architecture school, his post-graduation at CEPT University, a Scholarship to Switzerland, Design Education in the country and the rigours of architecture as a discipline.

A gold medallist at Gujarat University and a CEPT scholar, Sachin is passionately devoted to architecture and design theories. The inter-disciplinary collaboration between design, craft & technology enthrals him. By exploring how the different agents interact, he hopes to discover a new perspective to better problem-solving.

After working at Studio PKA, Mumbai, Sachin decided to branch out and start his own practice – SS Design Studio – with his partner Sanjana Samel, with a keen focus on adapting a multi-disciplinary approach to architecture and design.
