Architect and winner of the RIBA Charles Jencks Award
Anupama Kundoo founded her award winning practice in 1990 and has since built extensively in India, including a number of key projects based in the experimental city of Auroville. Anupama’s work is research oriented, with a particular focus on materials with low environmental impact and traditional hand-based technologies. Recent projects include the Full Fill Homes (2015), a modular and ecological system designed to be built in a number of days as a response to increasing homelessness, and the Sharana Daycare Facility (2019) for socio-economically disadvantaged children and communities in Pondicherry, India.
Anupama is the 16th winner of the RIBA Charles Jencks Award, which is given to architects who have “made a major contribution simultaneously to the theory and practice of architecture”.
