Brinda Somaya is part of the Bridge Generation, a term she coined to define the generation that ‘bridged’ the architectural space between the Masters and the current generation that continues to enter the global architectural space.. She believes that Architecture has to go beyond buildings, beyond the physical and extend into the soul, without feeling one is compromising on creativity or the thrill and excitement of design.
