Aneesha Dharwadker holds a Master in Design Studies degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University. Her research and design projects focus on issues of urbanization, form, representation, and new methods of mapping urban systems. She has a specific interest in the modernist movement, particularly in the overlaps between literature and architecture. While her undergraduate work focuses on the design of buildings and small-scale urban projects, her graduate and professional work considers issues of globalization, materiality, and the presence of history in urban form, with an express interest in Indian cities.
She is originally from Chicago, and currently practices at Safdie Architects in Somerville, MA. Previous work experience includes CS&P Architects in Toronto, and Skidmore Owings and Merrill, LLP, in Chicago.
