International Practice Talk: Anand Sonecha, SEALAB

SONA and EmAGN NSW present its first International Practice Talk with Anand Sonecha of SEALAB, an architecture practice based in Ahmedabad, India.

Anand Sonecha is a graduate of IPSA, Rajkot, India. He pursued his undergraduate thesis with Professor Balkrishna V Doshi. Later, he worked with Professor Doshi and Rajeev Kathpalia at Sangath in India and with Álvaro Siza and Carlos Castanheira in Portugal.

SEALAB is an organisation founded by Anand Sonecha and Mariana Paisana in 2015. Based in Ahmedabad, the organisation was created to shelter the work that Anand and Mariana were developing in India and Portugal. SEALAB was born from a common interest to design with time, with quality, and to reflect on the cultural and social implications of architecture.

SEALAB has been involved in the projects at Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad. Recently completed projects at Ashram include the Jai Jagat Theatre and Volunteer houses. Anand presented the “Initial works at Sabarmati Ashram” at Harvard University as part of IndiaGSD lectures in 2017.

This event is an initiative of SONA and EmAGN NSW.
