As the second generation in the profession, the focus is to expand and build on the legacy. Having done my Bachelors from around Baroda and Masters from the U.S, I believe that there is a tremendous potential for architecture to dictate and facilitate the way ahead. However, it is very easy to misinterpret and jump on the train without thinking about the consequences. The haphazard development appalls me as much as it motivates me. The global challenges of pollution, climate change, inequality and poverty cannot be alienated from architecture. At the same time, architecture can lead the way forward for countries with sensitive and well thought out stretegies. While in the States, I had the opportunity to study and explore foreign construction techniques in fairly similar climatic conditions. Having a counterpoint always helps to question the obvious. And, questioning before accepting will be the way forward.
