I, HARRIS.A, am a dreamer, passed out of Karpagam Architecture, one of the top Architecture colleges in Coimbatore, in 2016 (B.Arch), expressing my profound love and interest towards design. Having identified my leadership qualities, I was given an opportunity to be the Unit Secretary representing my college at the National Association for Students of Architecture (NASA). My professional career started by interning in two differently scaled design firms in Bangalore, SYNERGY (MNC) and Balan + Nambisan architects, where I was exposed to various scale of projects and responsibilities. After that I joined Mistry Architects, one of the leading firms in India. Joined as a Junior Architect, I was later promoted as a Junior Associate during my 3 year work period at Mistry’s. During this period, I was a part of many award winning projects. Under the leadership of my beloved mentor, Sharukh Mistry I learnt the core values of architecture, its ethics and to look at the BIG PICTURE that the profession caters to. After gaining experience working in different firms, teams and projects, I have now started up my own design-based practice in Coimbatore, a practice which strive towards architecture beyond aesthetics.
I owe all my growth and success to Karpagam Architecture, one of the best colleges of Architecture in Coimbatore. I have been taught the attitude and aptitude to shine at any circumstances during my college days.
