Anashwara Jayakumar is an intern at OKRA. She is pursuing her master’s in Sustainable Architecture and Landscape Design at Politecnico di Milano. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi. As an avid learner, her passion for public space and landscape design led her to pursue her master’s right after graduation. She is currently working on her master’s thesis, which focuses on the theme of ‘sustainable in-between territories’: regeneration and redefinition of the infrastructure-dominated periphery of a city in France.
She takes a keen interest in nature-based solutions and creative placemaking. While studying, she has worked as an intern in Dubai and Italy, working on architectural projects and associated public spaces. On the path to becoming a global citizen, she aims to keep nature and sustainable thinking at the core of her work.
