About

Aarti Dhingra is currently pursuing a postgraduate specialisation called ‘Building Beauty: Ecological Design and Construction Process’ in Sorrento, Italy, which explores the qualities of beauty and wholeness in architecture as grounded in Christopher Alexander’s principles.

She completed her master’s degree in integrated urbanism and sustainable design at the University of Stuttgart in Germany and, after completing her undergraduate degree at the School of Planning and Architecture in Delhi, worked with Muni Ashish Ganju on developing sustainable building practices with Buddhist nuns in the Himalayas.

As a practicing architect, she now works in the rural Himalayas of Kumaon, where she leads architecture, planning and interdisciplinary research projects with local craftsmen and NGOs, designing rural home-stays while also learning techniques of native-forest and heritage conservation in the region.

She was a Selected Scholar at the Norman Foster Foundation - Re-materializing Housing Workshop, supported by the Holcim Foundation and held in Madrid in 2021.
