My name is Sruti Vanamala Guntupalli. I received my Bachelors in Architecture from Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University in 2010. Since then, I have worked in various design firms in Hyderabad, including Design Concern which focused on institutional, office, and residential design. Later, I worked at Green Scene Studio, a landscape consultancy. Presently, I am doing my Masters in Landscape Architecture with professor Sam Dennis, working on a project-based thesis focused on incorporating nature into IT office design to improve health and wellness among the staff of the firm. In fall 2013, I was a project assistant in the Environmental Design Lab (EDL), and now I am a teaching assistant in design studio courses.
