Ar Sagarika Suri

Principal Architect, Studio Tessera


Sagarika Suri is a practicing architect and urban designer in Mumbai and has recently set up Studio Tessera. The studio has diverse interests in planning, architecture, interior and furniture projects and is passionate about material and technology as much as planning and building typology. The studio believes that working at several scales simultaneously enhances the project and the practice. It is currently engaged in master planning and design of an agriculture based second home community in Alibaug and the design of a co-working space in Pune. The studio has also set up rockpaperscissors, a material lab to experiment with ideas and concepts at a smaller scale. From assembling complete objects to developing isolated details, the lab explores materials intimately, to gain a practical understanding of their physical properties, processes that create them and those that alter them, breaking points, geometrical logics, and potentials to be sustainable. rockpaperscissors is presently working with plywood, paper, resin, concrete, glass and cloth. The lab has been working on innovating with recycled and reassembled plywood and wood turning techniques in furniture and lighting. Before setting up her own practice, Sagarika worked with Mumbai based firm Malik Architecture and Delhi based Stephane Paumier Architects on several large-scale housing development and institutional projects. She is also a part of CSA-Collective for Spatial Alternatives and has been engaged in self-development and low cost housing projects in Mumbai. Sagarika completed her Bachelor of Architecture degree from CEPT, Ahmedabad, India in 2006 and graduated with a SMArchS (Master of Architecture) degree in Urbanism from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA in 2011.
