Collaborative Architecture is an international award winning firm Co-Founded & headed by Lalita Tharani and Mujib Ahmed. Based in Mumbai , Ningbo China & Calicut the firm has been in the fore front of new Indian Avant Grade.
Architecture at COLLABORATIVE goes beyond the generally prevailing notions of functional contingencies and simplistic approach of problem solving. Projects fall in a larger scheme of things, transforming them into critical explorations of ideas and visions for future.
The act of doing architecture is not a forced result of the brief, but a compulsive urge of the creative mind. The designs are more often not, not a result of a rational process, but, intuitive, often layered palimpsests of logical, irrational, bizarre, poetic, clarified and impossible thoughts.
The practice is driven by innovation and ceaseless pursuit of quality in design to create projects, which are highly sensitive, poetic, and contemporary. Every project is an exploration, going beyond the functional brief, creating a symbiosis of people, places, culture, climate, economy and collaborative efforts of related disciplines
