Studio MADe is an idea-driven architectural practice stared in 2007 based out of Hyderabad (India) and Pamplona (Spain).The studio’s explorations span various geographies that reflect the diversity of its collaborators. These collaborations comprise a team of architects, graphic artists, landscape architects, and researchers based in different parts of the world. The work is a product of cultural exchange made possible through virtual collaborations. Studio MADe primarily focuses on architectural competitions in the public realm, aiming to address rising societal concerns.

This approach to engaging with the public domain in diverse contexts has enabled the studio to understand the emerging challenges of the architectural profession within contemporary society. The aim is to create places that resonate with people’s collective memory and concurrently strive to produce architecture that transcends functional and cultural specificity in an attempt to propose timeless solutions to spatial challenges. The team has also consciously engaged in critical self-reflection through exhibitions, thereby exploring the idea of architecture beyond that of the built work.
