Born in Bangalore, India, Vandana realized at a very young age that architecture was her passion. She loved building with her hands, enjoyed art, and also had a knack for math and science. Understanding what a powerful combination this could be for her future, her father took her on daddy-daughter dates to buildings that were designed by female architects, and on the first day she entered architecture school, she knew it was the perfect fit for her. Vandana has a unique ability to understand her clients’ intentions and aspirations beyond simply listening to the words they say. This is especially powerful for her education clients who typically have a large number of constituents involved, all with diverse perspectives. She is able to navigate through the many voices, create a clear vision, and translate that into a built facility that exceeds her clients’ expectations.
