Selfportrait (Remi de Souza)

Remigius de Souza has lived, worked, and moved for nearly half of his life in rural and forest areas at different times and paces. His formative years were shaped on rice paddy fields in Konkan where organic farming was still practiced. He has closely seen the tribal communities in Gujarat and Maharashtra. As an architect planner his work includes several schools and hostels for students in urban, rural and tribal (forest) areas, besides working on the Development Plan of Vadodara city. He had been visiting faculty in the colleges of architecture in Mumbai. He believes, Environment, Ecology and Energy are closely interrelated and should not be put in separate compartments.
