Our team curated a national exhibition ‘Samatva - Shaping the Built’ honoring the work of 80 women architects in India as part of the India Art, Architecture and Design Biennale at the Red Fort, Delhi. ‘Samatva’ (Sanskrit: समत्व) stands for ‘equity’ which is what the exhibition talks about in the fields of design and architecture, through the lens of gender.

A timeline room developed in collaboration with Madhavi Desai maps all the feminist collective efforts in architecture from the 90s until today. It aims to bring recognition to the work of women architects in India leading up to the exhibition at the India Art Architecture and Design Biennale 2023 which showcases exhibits by 50 women architects and designers.
