Rashmi is a recent architecture graduate from KRVIA. Her interests lie at the intersection of design, media studies, research and writing. Previously, she worked at Urbz which is a research collective based in Dharavi. She was involved in the documentation and ethnographic study of ‘Sangam Gully’ and provided design proposals for the same under the Homegrown Street Project. She has also worked as an architecture journalist at Volume Zero, an international design magazine where she wrote for, edited and designed an e-book. She contributed 3 stories for the book ‘It’s Play Time: Mapping Mumbai’s Play Culture through Narratives’ in 2019. Conceptualised by Dr. Martina Spies, the book was a collaboration between The People Place Project and Anukruti, an NGO.
She has been a part of various student exhibitions and editorial endeavours at college. She is a freelance writer and has authored research papers across themes like Urban Artefacts- Heritage & Collective memory, Urban Ecosystems & Sustainability along with articles on pop culture and digital media. Parallelly studying creative writing and screenwriting, she loves binging on movies, shows, documentaries in order to critically analyse them and hopefully make sense of the world around.
