MJA’s studio in Pune is a hub of architectural creativity, designing projects that explore new frontiers of contextual Modernism as a consciously adopted approach rather than a style. The studio’s journey from a small team to a multidisciplinary office is a study in the evolution of a consistent and restrained architecture and practice. This is an architecture that is austere in expression yet rich in experience, straightforward in approach yet profound in meaning and international in spirit yet rooted in its context.
Madhav Joshi has won many awards for his work, the most notable ones being the JK Cement Green Architecture Award 2010 and the JK Cement Architect of the Year Award 2011.
