Ankit Prabhudessai is a Goan based Architect, passionate about researching the role of architecture in the social module of a town or a city. After completing bachelor's degree from Goa College of Architecture, he completed a semester of Urban Design from Pratt Institute of Design , Newyork.
He aims to create a perfect alchemy between nature and buildings and considers that architecture plays a major role in contributing towards the Image of the city. The relationship of architecture to the other forms of art is a crucial one, like pottery, ceramics, painting and sometimes even music. Spaces should never be revealed at once, there should be a mystery that unfolds the story of architecture as the user travels through buildings.
Personalized palettes, down to earth materials, tropical textures, Play of light and shadow and enigma of the sound and water are attributes that define the type of architectural change he wishes to bring about through his firm.
'Architecture should be like a nest on a tree, enveloped and betrothed to nature. Every building then has a different story to tell.', he says. He has also envisioned and found a real estate company called, URBAN ALCHEMY . Urban Alchemy refers to the urban transformation, mutations in the real estate field. It reflects a new direction towards masterpieces created through architecture which would add to the image of the city.
