Practice Ideology

SpaceMatters was established in 2005 in New Delhi by Amritha Ballal, Moulshri Joshi, and Suditya Sinha, friends, collaborators, and alumnus of the School of Planning and Architecture. At that time and now, over a decade and a half into practice, SpaceMatters remains one of the few first-generation, women-led practices in the country. ​

‘SpaceMatters’ is both a commitment and a critique. They create space anew to affect change while analysing it through a spatial lens. This is the reason their practice combines built and ‘unbuilt’ work, moving deliberately away from patenting a style. Their work is highly textured and spans across scales, contexts, and media.
