Ankit Anil Parekh
B. Arch., M. Arch. (City Design)
At the age of Ten had a clear vision of becoming an Architect though my father being in an Agricultural background and my uncle being an Architect, loads of site visits in 1990’s got me the understanding of construction in towns. Gradually started sketching, never missing on proportions & scale was the key. Graduated From Bharati Vidyapeeth’s College of Architecture (Pune University) in 2009 trained under Ar. Soumitro Ghosh (Mathew & Ghosh Architects Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore) later had an opportunity to work under Ar. Sen Kapadia as Project Architect and handled Institutional client’s and swiftly started with my own practice ‘Parekh Ankit Anil Architect’ in Dec. 2010, which later converted to ‘Parekh Collaborative’ as people started joining the team. In 2013-14 attended a workshop on digital Architecture and got trained in Parametric Designing & Research which continues to inspire my practice. Biological Morphologies, AAVS 2015 (Architectural Association School of Architecture, London) to explore natural biological systems and their potential applications at larger scale. Eventually, in the process of learning, I realized Architecture is more intricate than I thought. But to connect those dots had study further in the field of Urban Design and did Masters from SCET, Surat in 2018(City Design). Along with learning able to work on Many Architectural, Landscape & Interiors project which include Public Park, School, Corporate Offices & Residences.
The projects included in this manuscript are a mirror of my thoughts and dreams over the years, which I humbly share with others.
