Graduate Assistant
Interior Designer

Priyashi Bhupendra Galiawala is an Internationally trained Interior Designer working towards a Masters’s degree in Architecture (First professional) from Pratt Institute. She holds a Bachelor in Interior Designing from Veer Narmad South Gujarat University, India. She is keen about pro-bono architecture. In her opinion architecture should not be only about creating buildings and getting personal recognition, it should be about giving back to the community in some way. Architecture should be about people, their experience, and comfort along with creating spaces that are unconventional and excite one to visit or live in there.
