Young, creative and visionary Architect Piyusha Taware, the winner of NDTV Students Design and Architecture Awards for 2014, talks about her background, career, challenges and projects undertaken so far. With her winning project Science Learning Centre, the lady has become an overnight sensation. Delve into this section to know her better!
Some Personal Information that you would like to share?
I come from Pune and have been working in Dubai. I passed out with a B.ARCH degree from B.K.P.S Govt College of Architecture, Pune wherein I also won the University gold medal. I look for sincerity, dedication & skills in all the people I meet & they interest me. I am quite passionate about design of all kinds & like to keep myself updated. I enjoy discussions, like to read, like listening to music & love travel.
When did you first start your practice and what kind of projects have you been doing?
I started practice as soon as I passed out from college a year back. I have done a few interior jobs in Pune & have been a full time employee with Plural Architecture & Designs, Dubai. It is here that I have been able to learn more about modern design sensibilities. The projects worked on are mostly high-end villas, clinics etc.
Tell us something about your approach to your projects.
My approach towards projects is rational & integrated. I believe architecture is not just about one person or one aspect. It has to be a team work & an integrated effort.
What defines your style?
My style can be defined as contemporary.
Which kind of projects do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy projects wherein creativity in thought & implementation is encouraged.
Tell us something about your project- Science Learning Centre?
My project Exploratory-A science learning centre is a visionary project. It is designed on the site on NCL (National Chemical Laboratories, Pune).
It is based on the teaching module of treating learning as a continuous process. Hence, a new building type has evolved. Site sustainability, sustainability in construction, functionality of spaces & their integration has been key in developing the concept of generative grid based on golden proportions.
Who/what inspires you and your works?
The need to do something for the society & environment and to make use of knowledge to the fullest is what drives me the most.
I find the work of architects like Joseph Alen Stein, Jean Novel, Roger Anger, Charles Correa, Sir Norman Foster, highly inspiring. Also, eminent architects today like Ar Karan Grover, Khosla Associates, and Christopher Charles Benninger.
Do you feel architects and designers should be concerned about environmental sustainability?
Yes. It is not only the question of concern for environment, but, time has come where architecture needs to be integrated with environmental sustainability. This concept, again, is not new & has been always practiced religiously as the basis of good architecture. We need to be constantly questioning ourselves about our role as architects.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
I love challenges in design. My biggest challenge so far has been my project Science learning centre where the site was small & highly contoured.
What challenges do you continue to face and what is your strategy to tackle them?
The challenge which I face continuously is to do the right things, to get the right people for the right job, to get things implemented as per the design philosophy.
What drives you?
The willingness & motivation to do good architecture is what drives me.
Any words of wisdom for students of architecture?
I believe that if one has positive attitude & patience, things do fall in their rightful place!
