Prashant Dupare and Shriya Parasrampuria are the founders and principal architects of Blurring Boundaries, a contextualist design practice in Mumbai, engaged in creating sustainable and appropriate design solutions. They are 2007 graduates from Sir JJ college of architecture and have had an architectural practice for more than 12 years. They have worked on a plethora of residential projects, schools, villas and restaurants, with ecological materials and techniques.
The founders believe that architecture has the power to affect the core of society and must be used responsibly. The spatial environment affects the thought process of an individual and therefore that of society at large.Challenging the ‘normal’ is a constant effort and being open to new ideas and concepts of learning is essential to growth, both as an individual and as an architect.
They are currently focused on the completion of a natural- building project in the outskirts of Mumbai. The resolve to use natural materials as much as can be is creating new challenges and an interesting design language is evolving for the project. They are also setting up a workshop for experimental works at the Brick House in Wada and always remain connected to nature and a simple sustainable way of living.
