Anupama Kundoo’s internationally recognized and award-winning architecture practice began in 1990 and demonstrates a strong focus on material research and experimentation toward an architecture with low environmental impact and appropriate to socio-economic context.
Kundoo builds extensively in India and has worked, researched, and taught in a variety of cultural contexts across the world: TU Berlin; AA School of Architecture London; Parsons New School of Design, New York; University of Queensland, Brisbane; IUAV Venice; ETSAB Barcelona; Cornell University; and UCJC Madrid. She is currently a professor at IE University in Madrid.
Kundoo’s work extends to urban design and planning projects, with her background in rapid urbanization development issues, on which she has written extensively. Her book chapter, “Rethinking affordability in economic and environmental terms” is published in the Routledge book, Inclusive Urbanisation: Rethinking Policy, Practice and Research in the Age of Climate Change (2015). She is the author of Roger Anger: Research on Beauty/Recherche sur la Beauté, Architecture 1958-2008 published in Berlin by Jovis Verlag in 2009.
Her research-oriented practice was exhibited twice at the Venice Architecture Biennale, with the installation “Feel the Ground. Wall House 1:1” in 2012 and “Building Knowledge, An inventory of strategies” in 2016. Kundoo is currently working on a solo show at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art scheduled for 2020.
Anupama Kundoo received a BArch from Sir J.J. College of Architecture, University of Bombay, in 1989, and a PhD from the Technische Universitaet Berlin in 2008.
