Equity by Design has ended

Prairna Gupta

San Francisco
With a diverse background of design experience in United States and India, Prairna recognizes that design is a way of life - not only that which we are currently living but also that which we aspire to live. She believes that a great architect is not someone who creates spaces, but someone who creates experiences and she tries to live up to this philosophy in most of her work. An avid design leader and enthusiastic team player, Prairna has worked on a variety of projects ranging from residential, hospitality, commercial, mixed use and others. Her passion for design and its value addition to society have always pushed her to excel. 

A summa cum laude from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Prairna is fascinated and inspired by the combination of art and engineering that makes architecture. During the course of her graduate and undergraduate studies in Chicago, she explored the dynamic interaction between architectural form and structure with a special design interest in tall buildings and urban habitats. Currently, she is pursuing her second Masters in Advanced Architectural Design from California College of the Arts, San Francisco with a focus on Digital Design Technologies to explore the boundaries of computational / parametric design.
