Mona graduated from the School of Architecture, CEPT, Ahmedabad and did her masters in Germany on Appropriate Technology at Flensburg University. She is practicing in Auroville since 1990. Her Studio offers a personalised approach to holistic solutions for designing and building - stressing on research in the fields of Baubiology ( Building Biology) and activating the five senses through architecture, interiors and landscaping while combining beauty and functionality. Sustainability for her is a way of life and not an add-on. She has also been a core group member of the Dreamcatchers, a forum for envisioning and participatory city planning. She is currently a member of L'Avenir d' Auroville, Auroville's Town Planning and Development Group.
