Sudhir Ambasana is an architectural designer and a digital artist. He received his MA from Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC), Frankfurt, under the specialization - Architecture and Aesthetic Practice (AAP). Prior to this, he was a design architect at Sanjay Puri Architects in Mumbai, India.

His position could briefly be understood by his interest in bringing back the human subject into the discourse of architecture - the subject which was absent for a very long time throughout architecture history. Using movement, the work transgresses from the material property of space to the perceptive faculty of human cognition; bringing into concern the dialectical questions regarding mind-body, inside-outside, representation-real, shape-form, image-drawing, machine-human and fragmentation-integration. He speculates on the idea of memory as a consciousness of past blending into the present whereas time as an assemblage of lived experience.

His overall portfolio of work could be well situated in the contemporary culture of hyper mediated images and its possible cues into architecture design where the shift is in the making of representations - from drawings to images. He explores design procedures through the use of photogrammetry and other image processing tools to further visualize and design 2D/3D imagery, immersive VR environments and AR applications.

Some of his recent research projects include - Scale as Such, Scale in the Visual World/Field, Micro-Narratives in Architecture Imaging and Chrono-Photography.
