An extended feature in Harvard Magazine on Professor Rahul Mehrotra (MArch '87) describes his work in Hyderabad, between the historic town that developed from the 14th century hilltop fort built by Hindu rulers, and HITEC City (Hyderabad Information Technology Engineering Consultancy) with towering office buildings and high-rise apartment towers. Mehrotra's Mumbai-based firm, RMA, endeavors to "soften thresholds" between these different sectors of society, building for a new India while conserving its past. The article by Elizabeth Gudrais traces the firm's evolution, Mehrotra's design methodology, and the context of Hyderabad.


SsD, the firm led by Jinhee Park (Design Critic in Architecture) and John Hong (Adjunct Associate Professor) won four AIA awards for recent work: The White Block Gallery, featured in Metropolis Magazine, won both a regional AIA New England Design Award as well as an Honor Award for Design Excellence from the Boston Society of Architects (BSA). 8 Towers, part of the Ordos 100 project, andIsland of Water, a landscape urbanism project in Incheon, Korea both won BSA Unbuilt Architecture Awards with the latter project taking the highest Honor Award in that category.
