Anupama Kundoo in Conversation with Ayesha Ghosh

Third-year M.Arch student Ayesha Ghosh speaks with Anupama Kundoo on the occasion of her lecture at Columbia GSAPP in November 2016. Kundoo, who started her award-winning practice in 1990, discusses the relationship between material and technology, involving people in the making of their houses to develop a new model for affordable housing, and her belief that many global versus local arguments miss the fact that people are not as different as one thinks.

“My deep belief is that architecture lies in the non-material. … Architecture is all about occupying the void and shaping the void and designing the void. Materials are there to hold the space.”
–Anupama Kundoo
