The fourth volume in the series The Architect's Studio is dedicated to the works of Anupama Kundoo. The much appraised Indian architect aims to shed light on a scarce resource in our life: time. Kundoo sees time as a forgotten resource in architecture. For her, architecture is a process that embraces the present, the past and the future. Taking inspiration from ancient building methods, Kundoo is concerned with using as few resources as possible in her architecture. This publication explores how traditional Indian building customs, crafts and materials are integrated into her studio's remarkable projects.

ANUPAMA KUNDOO was born in Pune, India in 1967. In 2013 she received an honourable mention in the ArcVision International Prize for Women in Architecture for "her dedication when approaching the problem of affordability of construction and sustainability in all aspects." Kundoo's internationally recognized and award-winning architecture practice started in 1990 and demonstrates a strong focus on material research and experimentation towards an architecture that has low environmental impact and is appropriate to the socio-economic context. Kundoo has built extensively in India and has had the experience of working, researching and teaching in a variety of cultural contexts across the world. She is currently Professor of Affordable Habitat at the UCJC Madrid and the Strauch Visiting Critic at Cornell University.
