Explorer of cities, designer, and planner, Rahul strives to build bridges across disciplines, scales, and cultures. Born and raised in Delhi, a city known for its contrasts, he learns from the places and people he encounters. Rahul’s professional experience stretches across architecture, urban design, and urban planning. He has worked on large-scale master plans, mixed-use developments, urban revitalization plans, streetscape design in Canada and globally. As an urban planner in our Toronto studio, he advocates for placemaking, active transportation, and all aspects of community well-being in his projects. Rahul’s approach is rooted in understanding the city as a social and built entity. By embracing a constant and iterative process of change, he believes that urban design can create meaningful, democratic, and vibrant places. Rahul brings enthusiasm for creating a positive impact to all of his work.
