Shailaja Sudhalkar Bhati
Shailaja S. Bhati studied architecture in Baroda and moved to Chandigarh to practice. She feels fortunate to have started her career in Chandigarh, because the city’s architecture helped form her mind. In 1999, she moved to Auroville and 2004 co-founded an architecture and planning studio called Planning and Architecture Towards Holistic (PATH) Development. The basis of the firm is inspiration, creativity and experimentation. She feels that her journey here as an architect continues as she continues to refine herself and explore new ways to mold spaces into holistically designed architecture.
