The Department of Architecture is hosting the architect Sameep Padora at Bezalel as part of the special lecture series

Padora practices both design and research, and will share in his lecture how they influence each other, in his projects and research in Mumbai, as well as in other projects that demonstrate his design approach. He is the principal architect and founder of the Mumbai based studio Sameep Padora & Associates (sP+a).
Sameep has a Master's Degree from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University in 2005. He is involved in academia in advisory roles of schools such as Academy of Architecture, School of Environment of Architecture & CEPT and has also held the Charles Correa Design Chair at the Goa College of Architecture. His practice has received many awards including Beazley Architecture Prize, Archdaily’s Building of The Year 2019, Wallpaper Magazine’s award for single-family house of the year and more. In 2016 he founded sPare, a research arm of the studio.  sPare’s maiden project, a documentation and analysis of historic housing types within the city of Mumbai resulted in a traveling international exhibition and book entitled ‘In the Name of Housing’ which is being published by the NAi internationally in mid 2020.

Join us on Tuesday, June 9th at 5:30pm (JRM). The lecture will be broadcast via Facebook Live on the Department of Architecture’s FB  page.
