Constructing Ecologies

Research interests

My current research interests fall into four main areas:

  • architecture of the liminal - space of haunting and of death
  • architecture of the sacred - Vastu Shastra
  • somatic space
  • sustainable development.

Current research projects

My current research explores different modes of representation of the invisible conditions of site. Particular attention is given to commemorative spaces in various cultural settings.
