Manasvini loves delving into the hows and whys of cities, urbanscapes and space. She has a (slight) obsession with collecting maps, corks and books.

Manasvini chose to study architecture and then urban planning because it gave her reason to combine her academic background with her passion for discovering new places and landscapes. She joined urbz to engage more with architecture in homegrown settlements and urban research in various contexts. For her, home is both in Chennai and Tours. In her free time she enjoys drawing, cooking, theatre and being a flaneur.
