Manit Rastogi commenced his architecture studies at the School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi, then went on to the Architectural Association where he graduated with distinction from the Sustainable Environmental Design program under Simos Yannas, and subsequently, the AA Diploma with Honours, under John Frazer. The influence of all three programs has formulated and influenced his thinking to date, to create a sustainable architecture through the framework of an evolutionary practice inspired by nature, with an emphasis on passive design. Known as an architect who consistently pushes the boundaries of sustainable design, he lectures extensively in Asia and has published several research papers with respect to zero energy buildings. Manit has been the Director of the Sushant School of Art and Architecture and continues to serve on its board. Manit’s commitment to sustainable environments goes beyond the realm of architecture practice through his work on GRIHA, India’s green rating system, as a founder member of the GRIHA Council.
