Chitra is one of the few women in India who has an independent practise in architecture. This is not very common since women architects are either married to architects or working on interior design. Her practice has also been different because she has steadfastly worked on ecological architecture. Now it is no longer self owned practise but a team of like minded architects and engineers who work on sustainable designs of all kinds- houses, work spaces, resorts and temples even. Their works have been mostly residences and we are very proud of designing ecological houses since they influence positively the future generation. To date they have designed and executed close to 600 buildings most of them made of earth making us the a small private practise with a rather large repertoire of earth buildings AboutTEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
