Suchi Reddy

Founding Principal, Reddymade

Suchi Reddy founded Reddymade in 2002 with an approach to design that privileges the emotional quality of human engagement with space. Guided by her mantra “form follows feeling,” Reddy’s architectural and artistic practice is informed by her research at the intersection of neuroscience and the arts. Working toward a larger idea of design justice, she is dedicated to expanding our notions of empathy, equity, and agency—where the importance of design is recognized as an asset for the benefit of all, not just for some. Reddy teaches at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, and has held teaching positions at Cooper Union’s Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture; the Catholic University of America, where she was the 2022 Walton Critic; and at the University of Illinois School of Architecture, Champaign–Urbana, where she was the 2019 Plym Distinguished Professor. Reddy has presented and lectured on the firm’s work at numerous venues including The Salk Institute for the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture’s annual conference, the WSJ Future of Everything Festival, the Aspen Ideas Festival, and Bloomberg CityLab. She sits on the board of the Design Trust for Public Space, Storefront for Art and Architecture, and Madame Architect; and she is a member of the Dean’s Board of Advisors at Detroit Mercy School of Architecture + Community Development.
