Agnimitra Bachi graduated from the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi. Early in his education, he developed a taste for sustainability when he worked with the Center for Science and Environment on alternative building practices. His fascination for ‘simply beautiful’ designs took him to Sri Lanka where he worked with prominent Sri Lankan architect Anjalendran, in close proximity to Geoffrey Bawa’s works, to which he attributes much of his design sensibilities. Agnimitra is also a graphic designer, part time comedian, theatre enthusiast and co-founder of the BlackBox movement in Delhi.
