Nidhi is a practicing architect & a serious dabbler - always ready to experiment and
With curiosity & passion driving her varied interests, Nidhi has worked on everything
from exhibit design to architectural journalism. She started her career as an intern at
Auroville; it opened her mind to the architectural world, with an admiration for details.
This followed with zoo planning and design, which gave her an opportunity to explore
beyond human ergonomics. Later, a stint in an architectural firm, gave an insight into
what it is to get things built.
After pursuing her masters, Nidhi discovered her analytical skills in doing research and
whole building analysis for glass facade buildings. Currently she chooses and work on
projects of her own interest and prefers an interdisciplinary team to work with.
"I believe making and breaking boundaries are both human endeavours. I believe
boundaries are created by us- degree, study, experience - what lies beneath is a
constant urge to learn and explore new horizons."
Relationship with Climate Miles
From first being mentored by Mohan for her thesis on 'Evaluating architectural
interventions in reducing carbon footprint of dairy industry', Nidhi has gone on to
collaborate on projects of mutual interest.
Jaya is someone, who pushed me to develop the ideas and give them the form. With
In depth understanding of number game of climate change, she guides you through
Nidhi is an enthusiastic partner in Climate Mile's Green Office/ Building LCA related
"The team at Climate Miles is what makes me excited to associate with them - young,
thoughtful & ready to experiment with new ideas."
Divided under 3 verticals:-
• Zoo Exhibit Design - Going beyond human ergonomics, Animal Architecture is
an ongoing investigation into ways of design. The project operates on the edge
between humans and our surrounding "others" -- illuminating alternative ways
of living with nonhuman animals, discussing cross-species collaborations, and
defining new frameworks through which to discuss biologic design.
• Environmental Architecture-In the backdrop of climate contextual design, an
approach to understand it through building information modeling (BIM). An
interesting way to deal with built forms using analytical skills & software.
Building information modelling (BIM) & Simulation - Catering to the need to
benchmark the energy utilized by a building with all specification, software
is used. Electricity usage based on heat gains & losses due to radiation,
transmission & conductance over a facade can we estimated accurately. This
gives us a guideline where Design & materials can be altered to conserve
Environmental design - Sensitive architecture, which includes a thorough
microclimatic analysis as a starting point. An in dept study of daylight & Wind
patterns to design built form in context to climate.
• Life Cycle analysis of Built form -Endeavour to infuse conscious choosing of
building material while conceptualizing Built Form. Selection of materials using
concepts of embodied energy , Carbon Footprint & Life Cycle analysis.
