I'm Rohan.


I am an Indian architect-urbanist interested in how design and planning meet the everyday experience of urban living. I strongly believe that the future of cities lies in collaborative multidisciplinary practice - one that borrows from both theory and real-world application. Consequently, most of my work lies at the intersection of urban research, design, and strategy. I often find myself initiating a conversation between people and places; forever willing to learn and get my hands dirty.


I have had the good fortune of working in dynamic teams at young practices such as the urbanism think tank Sensing Local and Co.Lab Design. Working closely with Anne Feenstra at arch i platform - an international research and sustainable design platform, I learned about situating my practice in the wider urbanism discourse. Since 2011, co-founding Delhi Dallying (a venture where we curate contemporary urban experiences) has been a lesson in creative spontaneity and tenacity. I have also volunteered with Music Basti, DesignxDesign and once did a fundraiser to rebuild homes in rural Nepal.


I am a student of the MSc. City Design & Social Science Programme at LSE, London- graduating by September 2018. I completed my B.Arch degree from the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi in 2013.
