ABOUT

Hi, I am Alekya Malladi. I received my post professional degree (M.Arch II) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) - AUD Entertainment Studio in Los Angeles, USA and a 5-year Bachelors degree in Architecture from RVCE, India.

I have always been interested in film and storytelling. Driven by this, my focus in academic work has been about conceptualizing the narrative and building imaginary worlds to deliver experience. Based on my prior experiences of working as an architect in India for 2-years designing residential, institutional and hospitality projects, I aspire to change the way architecture is perceived as being about buildings and the built environment. Architecture, to me, is the narrative of the space that we interact with.

I am an avid film watcher across many languages and have a profound interest in architecture, investigative narratives, visualization, world building, storytelling and visual design.
