RMA architects was founded in 2007, from a studio established by Rahul Mehrotra in 1990. Simultaneously engaged with a diverse range of projects, the firm sees a multiplicity of experiences as necessary for the evolution of culturally specific design solutions. The practice engages in work that includes projects for governmental and non-governmental agencies, corporate and private individual commissions, to institutional buildings as well as unsolicited projects driven by the firm as advocacy architecture in the city of Mumbai. Organized as a studio, the firm collaborates with consultants and citizens groups for allied building services and urban improvements projects. Maintaining a small core group of design associates, the firm works actively with local craftspeople to develop and refine construction details and methods of building that are relevant, sustainable, and founded on local knowledge.
