Amrit Phull is an architectural designer, writer and researcher. Her inherited caste, which previous generations have rightfully worked hard to abolish, is “builder”.
She has lived, worked, and studied in urban centres and remote northern areas (ex. Rome and Wemindji). She has written on the topic of these two worlds—urban and remote—as well as empathic design, bedrooms, ecological good, and her favourite cereal bowl in the shape of a fish. In Toronto, Amrit’s work focuses on Indigenous place-making within urban centres. She also works with Indigenous youth in remote communities towards the construction of safe, creative and bright environments.
Amrit is a contributing editor of –SITE magazine. Amrit is drawn to the composition of words and theory as much as the composition of the built environment and its layered narratives. She is thrilled to mine these issues from within the world’s greatest urban metaphor: New York City.
