Working between her native Chennai and New York, Suchi Reddy founded her international practice - Reddymade Architecture and Design in 2002 in New York City. With a decade of experience in major cultural and retail projects for established and award winning firms and projects such as the Drawings and Prints Department of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, and Ferragamo stores worldwide under her belt, she brings her skill with both large and small scale projects to the work of her own award winning design studio. The studio’s projects whether private or public, large residential projects for high profile clients or micro living are always centered on material and spatial innovation. A champion of Indian contemporary art, Suchi has written about art and design for Indian and national audiences. Currently the studio is completing a midrise mixed-use building in Reddy’s native Chennai, with a kinetic rain screen façade, and beginning construction on a residential project designed in collaboration with artist and social activist Ai Wei Wei.
