Ridhima Sharma – SVA MA Design Research

Ridhima, a Delhi-based architecture journalist with experience in writing online for the Indian market. At SVA, she aims to augment her specialization and understand how to express ideas about design through different media.

Ridhima aims to bring together the role journalism plays in architecture and other relevant social causes. She has interviewed numerous architects from around India and curating events and exhibitions related to architecture journalism. She was associated with IAS Officers (Indian Administrative Service Officers) and elite academicians from IIT Delhi for a government based research project and is a contributing author of the online media portal, Zingyhomes. Apart from her passion for writing about design, she is interested in graphic design and charity-related social work.
