Amrita’s background is in architectural design. Her career in architecture began in 2005, and took her on a journey from Delhi, to Sydney, Cairns, and finally Brisbane. Ten years on, in 2015, she forayed into the world of qualitative research and obtained her PhD from QUT, Brisbane in 2019. Her PhD research explores how to integrate nature into the built environment. She explores contemporary concepts around Ecological Worldview, Regenerative Design, Positive Development, Biophilic Design, Biomimicry and so on.
As a member of the THRIVE Tribe, she continues to explore innovative design methods that have the potential to blend the hard boundary between natural and human habitats. She has a passion for designing and advocating Living Buildings and Living Sculptures. She continues to explore avenues that assist in bringing her architectural design experience, sustainability and research interests together.
As a hobby, Amrita enjoys art and craft projects with her children. She runs a blog about process-led art as a means to enhance parent-child bonding. She finds catharsis in writing and enjoys contemplating a future of prosperity for humanity. Her varied interests and pursuits are fuelled by the belief that each of us possesses a glorious potential to care for ourselves, our connections, our home and our planet
