The first SHARE International Architecture and Engineering Forum edition in Bucharest is scheduled for 21-22 March 2017. Here we will have the honor to host Mrs. Sheila Sri Prakash as the special guest of the event.
One of the first Indian females to establish her own practice Shilpa Architects in Chennai in 1979, she is now a world-renowned personality, a global leader in sustainability in architecture promoting an environmental-friendly design and sociologically sensitive planning.
Having the rich Indian context as her background, she has founded the field of Spaciology researching how space design and planning influences society, thus creating a link between how we understand and practice architecture and how we develop as human beings in a global world. During her membership in the Global Agenda Council for Design Innovation at the World Economic Forum, she formulated the Reciprocal Design Index – a sustainability matrix linking the parameters and metrics of sustainable design in terms of environmental, sociologic and economic impact. Counterpointing this achievement, she launched the Reciprocity Wave – an artistic movement which draws attention to urgent social and environmental issues – at public places in Chennai (Nageswara Rao Park) and Banglaore (Cubbon Park).
