Brief Statement of Research Interest

I am a Post-Graduate fellow at Department of Architecture, University of  Engineering  and        Technology,     Lahore                          with          an        interest             in contributing to a deeper understanding of Rapid Digitization Era and its Impacts on Arts & Architecture. The Technological Advancements globally have not only in the drastic shifts in the way of living in general but the ‘Windows of Human Expression’ i.e. Arts, Crafts, Architecture or Music too has changed a lot. In Architecture, these transformations have been resulting to various other Architectural Theories or School of Thoughts along with a different domain altogether which is Digital Architecture; now crucial in transforming the Complete Process of ‘Architectural Thinking’.
Current Works:
Being Associated to both Research and the Practical aspects of Digitized Mode of Arts and Architecture, my current focus is to Explore,   Collaborate           and     Contribute                       in                  the     ‘New        Norm’  of Architectural Design Processes, predominantly though Academia but also through my works as Digital Artist and Architect infield practice. Currently working on my Master’s Thesis, my aim is to work on defying ways       and  methods  through                            which                  the    contemporary approaches of ‘Non-Standard’ or ‘Post-Fordist Logic’ Thinking in Architectural      Design    Processes    can    replace    the    Conventional, Industrial Logics and somewhat obsolete process of practicing Architecture.  In          Academia,                       we       as                  faculty     members     hold   great responsibility in inculcating these fresh concepts into the students to train them for Future.
Directions Ahead:
To Facilitate and Develop methodologies in playing active role for the adoption of the Digital Design Culture in Arts and Architecture of Pakistan through Research, Academics and Practice.
