Design Sans Scale

by Veeram Shah

“Design ni Dukaan” is a multidisciplinary studio based in Ahmedabad focusing on the concept of ‘design’ in totality and without distinction. This encompasses scales from architecture to commercial furniture.


Veeram Shah grew up watching his father collecting and restoring antiques. He finished his undergraduate studies in architecture from MMCA, Pune University and was introduced to nuances of art, architecture and philosophy by Ar. Girish Doshi. Veeram believes in an intimate studio such as ‘Design ni Dukaan’ where he undertakes projects of various scales from architecture, interior design to furniture design to create meaningful forms of inhabitation.

Connected Collaborative Studios


Four new colleges of architecture, all run by architects, have come together with a mandate of rearticulating the language, methods, knowledge and tools for architectural teaching and production. The intention is to create an academic space for students and teachers, which would become a catalyst for generating a cultural ecosystem for the discipline and for the society at large.


As part of this collaboration each school began by hosting two students from the other three schools to join their respective Sem IV Design Studios.

Each of the studios asked the following questions

What is a learning environment? At CARE

What does it mean to settle? At Avni

What is a clinic? At SEA

What is the role of connectedness in housing? At WCFA
