Ramit is a British Indian researcher, writer and architectural designer based in London. He graduated from the University of Cambridge with First-Class Honours in the BA Architecture course. Ramit’s first year design project at the RCA, Dadi-maa ke nuskhe explored the possibility of non-transactional spaces of care in India, in the wake of the devastating Covid-19 crisis. His design was inspired by inherited, familial bodies of knowledge and indigenous epistemologies of care, and was shortlisted for the RIBA London Student Award.
Furthermore, Ramit has been working with Historic England and the Greater London Authority on drafting the new London Heritage Strategy. As part of the latest London Plan, this project aims to support the development of a new strategic approach to community engagement and policy, particularly focusing on empowering communities who have traditionally been excluded from frameworks of planning and heritage.
Ramit’s interests lie in celebrating the rich but often underrepresented experiences of communities on the margin of power, by providing compelling platforms for these stories and knowledges to be shared.
