Project Curiosity draws inspiration from and meaningfully combines various design disciplines to conceptualize and create on diverse fronts. As these ideas are often novel and experimental so is Project Curiosity at its heart.
Ideas for a better tomorrow come from understanding today with a fresh perspective. As such Project Curiosity keeps a curious approach to all forms of design with the goal to bring a fresh perspective, inventive solution and truly integrated multidisciplinary design approach to encapsulate a unique methodology for creative problem solving.
With a strong focus on computation, Project Curiosity houses projects that create a link between Art & Science. Portfolio linked below covers various subjects ranging from Graphic design, Architectural design and Analysis, to Simulation of 3D printed concrete and topics in between. Project Curiosity aims to understand the link between all forms of design. Whether it be Architectural and the built environment, web development, interactive / animation design, data visualization, product design or unorthodox simulations.
Rahul is a passionate Architect, Designer and computational specialist. After graduating from University of Auckland in 2015, he joined BIG Bjarke Ingels Group in Copenhagen. Working in both their BIG Ideas and Architecture department, he learned strong computation methodologies in product design, coding workflows, Design analysis and Concept-Development Design. As part of the architecture team he took part in numerous large scale Architectural competitions globally.
In 2017 Rahul assisted in starting an Architecture and Creative Lab practice in Basel called GRUNER&FRIENDS. With a passion for design and a curious mind he began exploring many fields such as web development and integration, real-time visualization, Architectural design, IT management and Animation. Rahul continued to learn and adapt from his early training, further strengthening his creative problem solving skills.
In 2018 he continued exploring the various creative disciplines and his passion for computational design with Masters of Advanced studies in Architecture, Digital fabrication and Robotic control at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. To push both creativity and efficient design through automation in the built environments, Rahul explored various digital fabrication and robotic assembly techniques. Currently in New Zealand he works with various creative professionals globally to bring a fresh perspective and efficient workflows to design across disciplines.
