Aishwarya Sriram is a graduate from the American University of Sharjah. Having completed her bachelor’s degree in architecture, she is currently interested in furthering her architectural education with a focus on a successful pragmatic intersection of architectural discourse with ethical design. She believes that given the current world scenario, all individuals, regardless of their profession, cannot operate in isolation or without consideration for the broader world context. Outside of her interests in the built environment, she is a keen amateur ceramicist and attributes the development of her conscience towards sustainable design practices to the cyclical and environmentally conscious process of ceramic-making.
