Meet Our Guest Sameera Chukkapalli
As an advanced architect and director of Needlab (Barcelona, Spain) Sameera spends most of her time drafting human and environment-centred design solutions with communities around the world. Currently, she is driven towards solving the UN Sustainable development Goals and making sustainable design solutions reachable to all:
‘I founded Needlab, after completing my Masters and Postgraduate studies in Architecture and Robotics from IAAC. Needlab is a not for profit organisation aimed to solve problems related to habitat and urban resilience in cities and rural communities. We have completed 46 projects on 4 continents – directly impacting more than 5000 people. I feel truly fortunate to be a Yunus and Youth Fellow, FAB City Fellow, SIMP Leader, recipient of Design for all ” GOOD Practice” Award and to have received the honour to speak at the UN-Habitat Assembly 2019, Nairobi, Kenya.
