Rhea Shah is a transdisciplinary environmental designer who believes design should be a cultural manifestation of ecological processes. She is concerned with the pursuit of beauty through the dissolving of culturally imagined boundaries between built and unbuilt, human and other-than-human, organism and environment. She has worked as an architect, landscape architect, design researcher, film curator and design instructor. She enjoys all tactile explorations and journeys of curiosity. Rhea most prefers conversing through drawing and food.
