Bio:

Sudhir Jambhekar is an architect with considerable experience on a wide variety of project types and scales. Sudhir approaches design as a perceptive search for meaning and usefulness, narrowing the infinite possibilities for a project to an idea that balances the forces at work in each. His approach is rooted in the belief that all elements are part of the larger whole, and each element of the built environment is not only worthy of, but requires, design excellence.
Sudhir joined FXFOWLE (FXCollaborative Architects LLP) as Senior Partner when the firm he cofounded, Jambhekar Strauss.
