Sahil is a Bachelor of Architectural Studies graduate from Te Pare School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland Waipapa Taumata Rau. Born in New Delhi and raised in suburban South Auckland, he has developed a keen interest in urbanism, politics, architectural history and their intersection with Aotearoa New Zealand’s relationships with its indigenous Māori people.

Now studying towards a Master of Architecture (Professional) and Urban Planning (Professional) at Te Pare, he seeks to deepen his understandings of indigenous zeitgeists and their place in the wider built-environment discipline through continued research, alongside volunteer work in the architectural advocacy sphere and real-world experience in practice.
