Lecture Abstract:

Anupama Kundoo discusses the potential of architecture to address complex intersections of urbanization, people, technologies, resources, and the environment within the context of growing affordability issues. Her practice, the result of her quest for knowledge to build appropriately, considers projects as opportunities to build knowledge. Architecture is the result of building processes, and time needs to be invested despite the sense of urgency triggered by rapid urbanization.
