KRVIA Encounters

Varun Gulavne
Jaideep Mulye

Jaideep Mulye has been involved in Architectural practice for more than five years through Architecture, Interior, Urban and Structural design. My recent work lies at the intersection of architecture, parametric design and structural engineering.

The experience across the cross section of the design milieu made him aware of the varied rubrics, approaches and tools required to engage with different projects, and the way they affect the outcome. As a design sadhak, he shall be sharing some lively explorations in the making of things to mildly thrilling elaborations about collaborative, parametric, integrated processes.

Varun is a student of Master of Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture at the Ohio State University. He joined his Master’s program with a focus on design research. He has researched the definitive architectural object with Jeffrey Kipnis. He has been researching techniques for conservation of native American mounds with Professor Justin Parscher. He has also been a teaching assistant for the past 1.5 years for the course titled Outlines of the built environment. Over the past summer he worked on high rise projects at Cesar Pelli’s office Pelli Clarke and Partners.


There has consistently been a dichotomy between humans and others. In the interior, objects are in service of humans. Architecture and landscape attempt to bend nature to their needs or sometimes reduce it to an image. Object ecologies challenges this anthropocentric world view. It aims to examine what it means to be an object and, in the process, re-contextualize these others to generate a more inclusive discourse on built form.
