Rewind 10 years, Harsha was deciding between Architecture and Robotics. All that he knew was that Architecture was about Math and Art!
“I did give a little thought and decided to pursue Architecture because I had a great rank and my dad supported my decision even though it's not the first preference for an Indian child apart from an Engineer or a Doctor. But I think that may have been one of my best life decisions.” Harsha recalls.
And now in 2021, Harsha is an Architectural Designer at Cooper Carry working on a $210 Million LEED Gold Hotel project as a Sustainability Lead and Project BIM Manager in Washington DC, USA.
Architecture and Design is not always the first choice of career for many in India where Medicine and Engineering are always the most coveted streams to choose from. The journey starts quite unexpectedly for most, and achieving success within the field is seen as even a tougher task.
Let’s follow Harsha’s journey to see how he created a niche for himself in the field of Architecture and Sustainable Design.
