SHIDA Architecture is an avant-garde socio-architectural think tank with its origins in
India, that started sometime during 2005-06 at Sir J J college of Architecture, Mumbai. Its main 'area of concern' is the possibility of an architecture suited for the emergent consumerism in India post 2010.The practice's work ranges in scale from envisioning Hyper-Dense Skyscrapers for the near future, University Campuses, Eco Resort Complexes to as small as a Logo for a bespoke gastronomic Group in Manhattan. The Major emphasis lies on Intelligent Building Facade Engineering, that arise out of prceiving Architecture as the Third Skin, preceeded by Biological Skin as the first and Fashion as the second.
SHIDA is currently based out of New Delhi, Mumbai & Lille in France, with SOHOs in Delft, Netherlands and in Milan, Italy
Our collaborators include Architects, Comptational, Graphic & Urban Designers & Entrepreneurs spread across the globe, from London to Taichung via Athens.
