Summary profile of Morphogenesis
Morphogenesis is a design practice engaging in a critical dialogue towards bridging the boundaries of art, architecture, urbanism and environmental design in India. Founded in 1996, Morphogenesis is an association of architects, designers, urbanists and environmentalists. The Morphogenesis approach to creativity is inspired by the evolutionary processes in nature to create built form which is optimized for the built environment and the community. Design is viewed as a result of different stimuli, ranging from climatic conditions, urban fabric, local traditions, and human activity. At Morphogenesis, sustainability is a core creative value and is practiced in the evolution of the design. The practice considers the widening scope of sustainability to be all inclusive; to include social, cultural, financial, technological and environmental sustainability. It is this inclusive nature of design that, Morphogenesis believes, will define the new emergent Indian architecture.

Issues within the architectural realm of Morphology and Sustainability are investigated and tested within the research laboratory to re-define the conceptual and the contemporary framework of design practice. The think-tank delves deeply into socio-economics, culture and identity, exploring new models and approaches to architecture and design, whilst operating in the factual domain simultaneously.

The firm is based out of New Delhi and is in the process of setting up an architecture and design school in India.
The work of the practice has been exhibited at several venues internationally including the Gallerie ROM in Norway and the Royal Institute of British Architects in London in an exhibition titled ‘Critical Projects’. The practice has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades including the Green Good Design™ Award- The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum, 2009, The Architectural Review Cityscape Awards for the Best Environmental Design internationally and the Residential (Built) category, Project of the Year in The AIQ Awards (Israel), The A+D Spectrum Award for ‘The Young Enthused Architect’, and the JIIA (Indian Institute of Architects) Award for excellence in architecture among others. The work has also been extensively published in both national as well as international publications including Architectural Design, Domus (Italy), Architecture Record, Spaces (UK), The Atlas of Global Architecture (Spain), Art 4D (Thailand), Contemporary Indian Architecture, The Guardian (UK) and 10+1 (Japan).
