Architecture is a labor of love; the multiplicity of partnership, the minute attention to detail, the technical know-how, the management skill required make it a complex profession that can only be well practiced if it is embraced whole heartedly and without reservation.
I started my professional life in the construction field and learned first-hand what it means to build during more those 10 years as a contractor.
I studied architecture at the California College of Arts and Craft in San Francisco, and returned to France in 1993 to practice. I was fortunate enough to have a father that had practiced Architecture for more than 40 years and he guided me through the intricacy of the profession. In 2002, I joined the French Ministry of Culture and worked for the protection and restoration of historical monuments.
Auroville has been calling me since I read about it and I had the privilege to spend two years in 1983-84 in the early days of the township. Longing for Auroville brought me back to India in 2005 and I have been living here permanently since 2007.
Creation Architecture Studio was formed in partnership with Sindhuja Jagadeesh in 2011; in our work we try to achieve a harmony between the technical nature of the profession and the creative design process. Successful architecture, we believe, is a compromise between needs and means; to blend those constraints and express long lasting beauty is the ultimate aim of our architecture.
