Vaissnavi Shukl MDes ’20 has recently been awarded a Graham Foundation grant to advance her project Architecture Off-Centre. Architecture Off-Centre is a podcast highlighting contemporary discourses that shape the built environment but do not occupy the centre stage either in the architecture curriculum or in professional practice. It features conversations with artists, journalists, policymakers, lawyers, educators, and cultural entrepreneurs, whose work is deeply engaged in comprehending and mitigating the current challenges of civic life and whose scholarship contributes to the ever-expanding discourse of architecture.

The podcast currently spans over four seasons with 37 episodes and guests from over 12 countries, with at least 50% identifying as women. With this production grant, she aims to make the podcast content more accessible to a global audience by publishing interview transcripts, providing resources for detailed research and inviting guests from varied backgrounds.
