Pre-Design is as important to architects and clients as diagnosis is to doctors and patients

Naresh Shah, an architect with a successful practice in the USA for 35 years, who claims to be neither a Pre-Designer nor a teacher, has been actually teaching Pre-Design across India for the past few years since his return.

She says, “design is an art which showcases ‘Passion’, ‘Beauty’ and ‘Creativity’.” Following this mantra, she derives uniqueness in each project. According to her, “a personal space reflects the expressions of a soul that resides in it. The first challenge lies in connecting to the soul and exploring its multi-faceted affinities.
