Ashwini Patil
Jefferson University - 2023
M. Arch., Sustainable Design

Aspiring environmental enthusiast with over four years of work experience in designing Residential, Interior and Housing Redevelopment Projects. My design strategy during the anthropocene climatic period is to create a symphony between Architecture & Nature to visualize inclusive and sustainable built ecology.

I have volunteered for various NGOs in India which are actively involved in rural development and community engagement and was also a member of Rotary Club Hillside, Navi Mumbai which organizes various social events. I participated in Smart Cities Training CSMT: Urban Transformation (Urban Vision) project for creating safe pedestrian spaces. In my view, climate change isn’t just causing wildfires or storms but it is also changing the baseline of our planet.

My methodologies are emerging while learning about ecologically responsible architecture by collaborating with stakeholders. I aim to implement the methods I learned for environmental, economic & social development of all segments of the society groups after graduating. As a designer, I intend to work towards creating resilient, equitable communities and life cycle assessments of built environments."
