Learn to design a sustainable pavilion and participate in a competition!
You heard it right! Terra x Terra Pavilion Design Workshop + Competition is a new learning experience, where you get to learn from the experts and have a chance to participate and win the competition. The participants learn to develop a sustainable responsive pavilion using computational design tools (Rhino and Grasshopper). The challenge lies in striking the right balance between the fluidity offered by parametric design and leveraging digital fabrication tools in combination with modular components.
This is your chance to learn computational design strategies from Monish Kumar Siripurapu (Studio ANT) and Karthik Dondeti (Voxelscapes & Codebalé), and participate in the Competition!

Meet your Instructors
Monish Kumar Siripurapu is the founder and principal architect of Ant Studio, New Delhi, which he started in 2010. He graduated from the School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), Delhi in 2009 and received the prestigious JN Tata scholarship in 2015 for his PG Diploma in Robotic Fabrication from Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), Spain.
In collaboration with his colleagues, he has won many national and international competitions for architecture and design, including the Green Design Award for Design Against The Elements (DATE), the Commercial Design award at FOAID-2018, and most recently, the competition for the renovation and development of the Imagination Centre at Dhun, Jaipur. His works have been published across well renowned architectural journals and platforms, such as World Economic Forum, Architectural Digest, ArchDaily, Inhabitat, among others.
Karthik Dondeti is a practicing architect and founder of Voxelscapes - an Architecture studio and Codebalé - a Generative art studio based in Bangalore, India. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi and a Masters Degree focusing on Design and Technology from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University.
He had subsequently worked with Research Institutes in the fields of Building Technology and Design Computation which include Harvard Visual Computing Group and MIT Sustainable Design Lab. As part of his research at these institutes, he had developed automated simulation and data visualization tools that analyze architecture and urban morphologies including early prototypes for AURA - An Environmentally responsive Design Tool that aids architects in the conceptual design stage. Karthik is passionate about operating at the intersection of the Digital and the Analogue and is currently working towards incorporating algorithmic design processes in the domains of Art and Architecture. He is active in the academic domains, teaching courses on Computational Design and Creative Coding in schools of Architecture, Art and Engineering across India.
