Shubhra describes her work as born out of conditions that "keep you on your toes; ever vigilant, always looking for that foothold to anchor oneself. There is not much choice, but plenty of opportunities."

She is inspired by the exciting shift in the dialogue between architecture and its context, in which the architect’s methods and approaches are being consistently reevaluated. She also ascribes to an expanded definition of sustainability that moves beyond experimentation with new materials and technologies to include such concepts as social and economic stewardship. Together, these undertakings not only offer practical solutions to known needs, but also aim to have a broader effect on the communities in which she works, using design as a tool.

Her practice is engaged with projects that range from community networks in Colorado, rehabilitating masonry structures in Egypt to the design of cultural, social and educational spaces in India and the US – thereby engaging diverse issues, multiple constituencies and varying scales and geographies.

Shubhra is a visiting professor of Architecture at the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) in Ahmedabad (India) and the Denver and Boulder campuses of the University of Colorado. In addition, she has taught at her graduate alma-mater Cornell University. She lectures where invited, and has been a visiting critic at universities in the United States, continental Europe, India and China.
