Gita believes in sustainability as a holistic and supple design approach, integral to all aspects of design and construction.. She also puts her beliefs into practice as an architectural educator. Her pedagogical approach focuses on an integration of academic studies and hands-on tactile learning to explore and understand the built environment and our place within it. Thread collective explores the seams between building, art and landscape, not only as disciplinary boundaries to be blurred, but as spatial edges, rich with design opportunity. A broadly defined notion of sustainability, existing site characteristics, and the sensory experience of the user further inform and strengthen our design process.
