Ateya Khorakiwala

Ateya Khorakiwala is an Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP. Khorakiwala is an architectural historian researching the infrastructural environments and ecological landscapes of the developmental Indian state with an interest in the aesthetics of construction materials such as concrete, bamboo, and plastic. Her current book project investigates the plinth as an interface between infrastructure and architecture in developmental discourse in post-World War II India, arguing for this architectural gesture as a point where the state, the market, and foreign interests converged to produce a global Third World subjectivity during the Cold War. She is also working on an edited volume, Systems and the South: Architecture in Development about the diverse architectural strategies and new forms of expertise that found traction in the post-war Global South.

Khorakiwala received her Ph.D. from Harvard GSD and was a fellow with the Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture Urbanism and the Humanities. She was trained as an architect in Mumbai at KRVIA and studied history and theory of architecture at MIT.
