STATEMENT OF ART:
Natural plus modern.
True to its meaning, at ‘MIDORI’ we believe there lies an element of inspiration for all projects, large or small, through the Green approach. We employ the best talent with whom, through open discussions, we foster sustainable ideas and develop smart design using new-age techniques and tools.
Buildings are a living part of our world , they expand our senses of who, where and why giving us occasions of human contact. Architects do have a social responsibility that extends beyond practice i.e. sustainable design. Architecture can significantly impact the built environment and with every project we have the enormous opportunity to eliminate GHG's minimizing building energy consumption. Zero Carbon Architecture through environmental design is THE ONLY future. There is nothing that drives me more than to make see a future that builds smarter, better and greener - connecting communities to the natural.

EDUCATION:
2011,Masters in Sustainable Environmental Design, Architectural Association, LONDON/UNITED KINGDOM
2007, Bachelors in Architecture, School of Architecture & Planning SAP, Anna University, CHENNAI/INDIA

EXPERIENCE:
I have been fascinated with buildings ever since I started playing with my brother’s Lego sets as a child. This spark eventually turned into a lifelong passion that would shape my career. My path started out in trying to balance my flair for engineering and passion for the arts. This led me to explore my creative side, I secured a place at the under-graduate Architectural program in the reputed School of Architecture and Planning, Anna University, Chennai. An area of international research which caught my attention in my final year of undergrad school was the frontier field of sustainability and the much-discussed ‘green revolution’. From there on, there was no turning back, my passion for all things sustainable, drove me to practice at T. R Hamzah & Yeang Sdn, Bhd in Kuala Lumpur. During this time, I was involved with the design phase of several large scale mixed-use, residential & commercial tower projects in Asia that were driven by sustainable concerns. In 2009 I chose to return to academics and pursued my Masters in Sustainable Environmental Design at the Architectural Association, London, UK.
Post-Graduation, my focus shifted to broadening my knowledge in Green building certification and worked as an green analyst with Design Partner Architects Singapore & with Environmental Design Solutions Pvt Ltd India. I am a LEED® Accredited Professional with a specialty in Building Design & Construction, a certified GRIHA Evaluator & Trainer, and one of the few design professionals from Chennai to achieve a Green Mark Manager (GMM) designation from the BCA Academy Singapore.
Starting Midori Architects was a natural step in my journey. As an innovator, I wanted to approach design challenges with a fresh, unique, modern sustainable perspective that crafts spaces for life well lived.
