Rishi brings more than 15 years of experience working on complex projects including Museums, Academic Sciences & Engineering Buildings, Executive Dormitories, Research Laboratories and Bridges. These projects have often incorporated complex design elements including double skin curtain walls and atriums which have required creative solutions to help meet client goals while minimizing the potential environmental impact, particularly energy, through the creative use of systems. Rishi has spoken at numerous conferences including I2SL and ABX Boston and is active member of his community. His focus is on resilient communities and has participated as part of the AIA’s Design and Resilience Team (DART) focused on minimizing climate and social impacts for the city of Providence.
