Reddymade, founded in 2002 by architect Suchi Reddy, is a diverse architecture & design firm whose practice takes a human-centric approach to design, one that assesses the economic, social, environmental, and cultural impacts of her work on both people and planet. Working from her home country of India to her home base in New York city, with projects in Miami and Los Angeles, Reddy charts a course for all things Reddymade with a culturally specific, globally curious eye.
Current notable projects and areas of research include a kinetic rainscreen façade for a multi-use building completed in 2016 in Chennai, India; a sensory healing room designed to measure the effects of space and sensory input on patients recovering from comas for the Arts + Minds Lab at the Brain Sciences Institute of Johns Hopkins; and a residential project designed with artist and social activist Ai Weiwei in upstate New York.
Reddymade’s projects have garnered the studio numerous awards, including a 2018 AIA Excelsior award, a 2018 AIA BQDA award, a 2018 NYCxDesign award, and a 2018 Architizer A+ award. Recent press coverage includes articles in national and international publications such as the New York Times, Forbes.com, The Architectural Record, Architects Newspaper, Dwell, AD.com, the Wall Street Journal, Interior Design, New York Magazine and AD India.
Reddymade’s work has been included in publications such as Drawing from Practice: Architects and the Meaning of Freehand by J. Michael Welton, 2015, Routledge Press, and 1000 X Architecture of the Americas, 2008, Braun Publishing.
