About Mod

The work we do is design-driven, with an emphasis on exploring the underlying dimensions in the urban fabric, focussing on everyday spaces and objects. We are fascinated with cities, and interpreting them by visualising their information and analyses, hands-on design and mapping techniques.

Started in 2010, Mod Foundation is the CSR arm of Venkataramanan Associates (VA), an architecture, interiors and urban design practice headquartered in Bangalore. The Foundation is an interdisciplinary urban action and research institute, a collective of architects, designers, researchers, curators and practitioners with interests in, and interests for engagement with the urbanisation processes in India.
