Bio: Architect Suchi Reddy founded Reddymade, her diverse architecture
& design practice, with a human-centric approach to design, one that assess the economic, social, environmental and cultural impacts of her work on both people and planet. Since 2002, working from her home country of India to her home base in New York city, with projects in Miami and Los Angeles, Suchi charts a course for all things Reddymade with a culturally specific, globally curious eye.

Reddymade's sophisticated "sense of the new" is evident in such current projects as a kinetic rain-screen facade in Chennai, India, an avant-garde, modular home in Beverly Hills, the amenities  building for a 245 unit condominium project in Sunny Isles, Florida, with lobbies designed by Karl Lagerfeld. The firm's design for the Women's Building in New York, a center for the global women's and girls’ rights movement, was one of thirteen finalists in the 2016 competition. In July 2017,  Reddymade created its first large scale public installation, a community engagement project in  Prospect Park collaborating with  creative agency AREA4 to celebrate the park’s 150th anniversary.

Current projects include a residential project designed  with artist and social activist Ai Weiwei in upstate New York . With gallerist Sara Meltzer, Reddy steers WeR2, commissioning artists  to reinvent everyday objects.

Always imaginative, and often art-filled , Reddymade’s projects have garnered the studio numerous awards and coverage in international publications from the New York Times, Architectural Record, The Wall Street Journal, Interior Design, Dwell, New York Magazine, AD India, Christie’s Interiors and Elle. The studio has been nominated for Interior Design’s Best of Year award, and MoMA /PS1 showed the  short film, “71%” made for a competition on climate change in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
