Born and raised in New Delhi – Kushal is always in quest for inclusive, re-wilding and aesthetic landscapes which are able to pacify humans and other species. Before studying landscape architecture (he received his Masters of Landscape Architecture at U.C. Berkeley), he was trained as an architect, graduating at the School of Planning and Architecture in New Delhi. He takes his inspiration from works of Geoffrey Bawa and Luis Barragan and likes to design spaces indoor, outdoor, and in between.
He currently works between California and India and continuously educates himself with travel. He has explored working in several geographies through a diverse range of projects such as wetland restoration, public waterfront projects at Tom Leader Studio, a school in Himalayas, urban plazas in Thailand, the Architecture Biennale in The Netherlands and Market Street, San Francisco. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi, India and a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley where he also teaches part time. A TATA scholar, he was also awarded the prestigious Geraldine Scott Travel fellowship to study landscapes in motion and ASLA certificate of Honor, CA (2016). At Architecture BRIO he collaborates on all landscape projects, realising his goal to eliminate the distinction between the field of landscape and architecture.
