Speakers at IAD 2018
Raje describes her work as born out of conditions that “keep you on your toes; ever vigilant, always looking for that foothold to anchor oneself. There is not much choice, but plenty of opportunities.”
She is inspired by the exciting shift in the dialogue between architecture and its context, in which the architect’s methods and approaches are being dramatically reevaluated. She also ascribes to an expanded definition of sustainability that moves beyond experimentation with new materials and technologies to include such concepts as social and economic stewardship. Together, these undertakings not only offer practical solutions to known needs, but also aim to have a broader effect on the communities in which she works, using design as a tool.
