MonishARCHITECT – MANAGING DIRECTOR OF ANT STUDIO
Monish Kumar Siripurapu is the founder and principal architect of Ant Studio, New Delhi, which he started in 2010. He graduated from the School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), Delhi in 2009, and received the prestigious JN Tata scholarship in 2015 for his PG Diploma in Robotic Fabrication from Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), Spain.
In collaboration with his colleagues, he has won many national and international competitions for architecture and design, including the Green Design Award for Design Against The Elements (DATE), the Commercial Design award at FOAID-2018, and most recently, the competition for the renovation and development of the Imagination Centre at Dhun, Jaipur. His works have been published across well renowned architectural journals and platforms, such as the World Economic Forum, Architectural Digest, ArchDaily, Inhabitat, among others.
The core intent of his work is to bridge between the spheres of Art, Nature, and Technology, thus the name ‘ANT STUDIO’. His endeavour is to produce simplistic, almost intuitive design solutions, and use technology, whether it is computational design, robotics, or mechanics, as a tool towards realising the design. Ant studio works with a clear vision where sustainability is not seen as an option but a core principle and an opportunity to create designs that go beyond functional and aesthetic concerns, generating an intimate rendezvous between the products and nature.
This ideology has been carried forward in all of Monish’s projects, which range from private residences to group housing projects, interior designs to installation art. The blend of nature and technology, giving birth to sustainable, artistic forms is observed throughout his works, like in the architecture of farmhouses in Delhi and Kerala (Anahat and Malampuzha farmhouse respectively), or in the design of his installations (Fern leaf, Windwave, among others).
Monish’s eco-friendly air cooling product, called the ‘CoolAnt’, has received a lot of recognition and accolades. CoolAnt was instrumental in Ant Studio being awarded as one of the 12 winners of the Asia Pacific Low Carbon Footprint Challenge by the UN Environment Programme, out of 180 startups from 22 countries. Recently, Ant Studio was also awarded as one of the winners from the Delhi chapter for the Clean Energy Challenge by What Design Can do, Amsterdam for Coolant, out of a total of 457 entries.
Monish is also an active participant in major events covering architecture and design. He was invited as a keynote speaker at the World Environment Day - 2018 event held in New Delhi and has been invited to speak at the prestigious 361 degrees conference in Mumbai and at a TedX event. He has been invited as a lecturer and exhibitor of his works in various IIT’s and IIM’s.
He is also a part of the visiting faculty of SPA, Delhi one of the leading architecture schools in the country. In his free time, he designs products, two patents of which are in progress.
