Gurjit Singh Matharoo, Matharoo Associates, Ahmedabad, India


Matharoo Associates is a 25 year old practice that began operations in Ahmedabad, India. In 2013, Gurjit Singh Matharoo was Conferred an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, only the third Indian after B.V.Doshi and Charles Correa to be honoured.The diverse range of projects have brought the firm International and Domestic recognition, including the 2011 International Architecture Award by the Chicago Athenaeum, the 2010 Architectural Review House Award and the 2009 AR Emerging Architecture Award, to name a few.

The studio calls themselves romantics- governed by emotion over calculation, and affected by beauty more than gain. Projects are injected with a potent dose of wit, so buildings are not sterile, but playful fun to be in. It is coupled with their internal working philosophy of extreme restraint, ‘when in doubt, reduce; when not in doubt, surely reduce'.

Gurjit is currently Chair for Architectural Design at his alma mater CEPT University, Ahmedabad where he has been visiting faculty since 1990, and is the founder member of the Architectural workshop Pan India Travel Studio.
