Tanushri Dalmiya

Tanushri Dalmiya is a graduate of the Masters of Architecture in Urban Design program at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (2023). She works towards investigating the role of socially relevant and participatory design in the built environment. Her research lies at the nexus of climate migration, systems thinking, community engagement and humanitarian innovation embedded in the circularity of our Waste, Water, Energy and Mobility Systems. At Harvard, she was awarded the Penny White Project Award and the Paul Heffernan Award to further her research in state-led extractivism at the cost of ecology and environmental racism. Tanushri has worked with several globally recognized organizations such as the Inter-American Development Bank, Lakshmi Mittal South Asia Institute, and the Directorate of Urban Land Transport in India. Passionate towards local craftsmanship, she founded Vayam, a design collective that celebrates artisanal knowledge and natural materials in the design of the built environment.

As a 2022 MCI Fellow, she conducted research on the commodification of landscapes and resources through tourism in the Yucatan Peninsula. Her work with MCI can be found here
