About the Guest:
Maneesh Kumar trained as a craftsman at his hometown Jaisalmer in his formative years and studied architecture at Rizvi College of Architecture, Mumbai, before founding Studio Praxis at Ahmedabad in 2012. He has been a visiting faculty in architecture and furniture design at various institutes in and around Ahmedabad, including Navrachna University (SEDA), Kalol Institute of Architecture and Design (KIAD), Indus University (IU), and Nirma University (NU).
About the talk:
Praxis for Maneesh is not a way of life. It is life itself – integrating mind, body, and being. It is a process of learning by doing and thus experiential in nature. Praxis potentially unites one’s being with the work one is involved in. Art – be it sculpture, furniture, or architecture, is the expression of the harmony and perfection arising out of this union.
