COO, Kii Group and Company
I am Sanjana, the Chief Operating Officer of our dynamic company and a Visionary Architect whose innovative designs have transformed our approach to blending design with sensory experience. Join me as I share the chapters of my journey, each marked by creativity, a profound connection with the environment, and a deep appreciation for architectural designs that harmonize with sensory components, all of which have left an indelible mark on our company.
From the beginning, I've been captivated by the idea of merging design with local history and culture. However, I recognized that a complete understanding of any project's essence required a deeper appreciation of sensory elements. This realization ignited a desire to challenge myself, aiming to design structures that not only captivate visually but also convey a narrative through sound, scent, sight, and touch, deeply rooted in the surrounding environment.
My journey involved delving into the sensory aspects of diverse cultures, from the sounds of local events to the scents associated with various places. I explored the significance of materials used for comfort and remembrance, and the various hues entwined with different religious rituals. This holistic approach provided fresh perspectives and a newfound reverence for nature, which, in turn, fueled my creativity and sparked innovative ideas.
One pivotal day, I made the decision to step beyond conventional architectural boundaries and embarked on a personal initiative to share my unique perspective with the world. To enhance my expertise and nurture fresh ideas, I delved into the world of 3D printing, enabling me to broaden my artistic horizons and streamline the creation of intricate models for my projects. This newfound knowledge not only expanded the possibilities for my creative expressions but also optimized efficiency and resource allocation.
With each transformative experience, I've witnessed the incredible potential of uniting design with sensory components, enriching architectural concepts and leaving an indelible mark on the projects I've undertaken. As I continue to explore new horizons, my passion for integrating design, culture, and sensory experience remains undiminished, driving my commitment to artistic innovation and harmonious coexistence with the world around us.
