Triveni is an Architect and Urban Designer primarily based in Mumbai. She completed her masters degree from the University of Westminster, London in Urban Design with a minor in International Planning where she was the only beneficiary of the Postgraduate Part Fee Scholarship in her class. Her academic work and research was built on urban design, planning, and architecture professional practice undertaken in London and Mumbai.

Post her bachelor’s degree, Triveni worked as an architect with practices based in Mumbai on a range of high-end, high-rise residential architecture, and luxury interior design projects. Prior to joining Rizvi College of Architecture, she worked as an urban designer on a range of public and private master-planning and urban regeneration projects. Through her own practice, she has undertaken interior and graphic design projects in branding and identity.

Triveni’s interests and pursual focus on placemaking and place-shaping through the examination of form, use, and experience of spaces and the notions of perception, identity, diversity, place, etc. in the existing complexities of the cities.

Her core strengths include context analysis, strategic design, responsive design interventions, critical thinking in design and planning, spatial analysis, research work and writing, and design suggestions strongly backed by literature.


Triveni’s foremost method of teaching includes encouraging critical thinking which enables individual learners to engage with creating designs for environments that respond to complex existing problems. The potential of digital technology in relation to designing, analysing, and learning is also an integral part of her ethos as she believes that it should be encouraged to reach its maximum potential. Apart from this, encouraging reading and writing to back up design through literature, and collaborative discussions are also significant to her as it enhances peer learning and critical engagement with the shared body of knowledge in the field of design.
