RUCHA ANAND VALIMBE

I am currently a final year student of BA Architecture at the Manchester School of Architecture.
I intend to work as an architectural intern/ assistant on completion of my RIBA Part 1 education
later this year.
I am a highly motivated individual and enjoy engaging in unique opportunities. At University, I
have been exploring design projects of mixed-use building and residences throughout the first
and second years. Currently, as part of year 3, I am exploring parametric architecture to design a
pavilion and a high rise building.
