Studio Mumbai (> Biography) works with an interdisciplinary group of people between India, Japan and Europe. Architects, engineers, master builders, skilled artisans, technicians and draftsmen are collectively involved in the research and development of the work. This group shares an environment created from an iterative process, where ideas are explored through the production of large-scale mock-ups, models, material studies, sketches and drawings. Projects are developed through careful consideration of place and practice that draws from local skills, building techniques, materials and an ingenuity arising from limited resources. The essence of the work lies in the relationship between man in nature – nature in man.
