Sanjeev Shankar was born in the Nilgiri hills of Southern-India.
As founder of a transdisciplinary creative studio, Sanjeev uses his training in design, science and architecture to merge traditional crafts-based knowledge with contemporary cultural and technological trends to construct cutting-edge, socially responsible and life enhancing architecture. Over the last ten years, he has inspired and galvanized communities globally by walking the thin, exciting line between restraint and risk. Through revolutionary leadership, rigorous research and experimentation, and an inclusive hands-on methodology, he has reshaped the way people think, create and dream. A recipient of the Chevening fellowship from Britain and the DAAD fellowship from Germany, his critically acclaimed works have featured at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London; Centre for Architecture in New York and the Doors of Perception in New Delhi. He was recently awarded the Emerging Architecture award at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London and has won the "10 Great Ideas to change the world" project, a global initiative focussed on revitalizing the planet by the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
Sanjeev continues to explore a critical and collective agenda for human ingenuity in the 21st century.
