Pre-Design is as important to architects and clients as diagnosis is to doctors and patients

Naresh Shah, an architect with a successful practice in the USA for 35 years, who claims to be neither a Pre-Designer nor a teacher, has been actually teaching Pre-Design across India for the past few years since his return.

On his return to India he realized the practice of Pre-Design as a supplementary architectural service was nonexistent. His sole exposure to design instruction at a college revealed that the students were neither taught Pre-Design nor allowed enough time for predesign. So, instead of fighting the system, he along with his colleague, Prasad Anaokar, developed predesign workshop as an aid for design and thesis projects for the students.
