Morphogenesis Architecture Studio was established in 1996, by three partners, Sonali Srivastava Rastogi, Manit Rastogi and Sanjay Bharadwaj. Sonali and Manit hold double Masters Degrees from the acclaimed Architectural Association, London.
At Morphogenesis, they see themselves as working in an architectural laboratory, constantly advancing the boundaries of design through technology. Working across widely divergent project scales, they believe, is one of their core strengths. As variety enriches their own cross referencing system, they approach projects of all scales and types, whether it be a town-ship to a townhouse, with the same zeal and passion for detail.
It is their constant endeavour to develop an Indian response to the forces of globalisation. Which is why they use an R&D approach to building materials and construction technology an approach that allows them to experiment with new materials in a quest for tectonic perfection and new millennium solutions. This gives their technique a fluidity and dynamism that evokes a kind of architecture, where the design process itself is multi-dimensional, netwirked and cosmopolitan.
In the past few years, Morphogenesis has won several awards including the IIA Award for Excellence in Public Architecture, the A+D award for Architecture for interiors and the Jindal Stainless Steel Award, to name a few. Internationally, their work has been presented at the Gallery ROM in Norway and has also been exhibited at the prestigious RlBA in an exhibition titled 'Critical Projects; side by side with works of Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, multi-dimensional, networked and cosmopolitan. Michael Hopkins and Bernard Schumi.
