Founded in 2003 by Christine Mueller and Pankaj Vir Gupta, AIA, the firm of vir.mueller architects combines architectural research, education, and practice. Prior to establishing the office, both partners worked on residential, commercial, and institutional projects for architecture firms in the United States, Europe, and India. The architecture of vir.mueller architects strives to create specific visual and kinetic relationships within the terms of culture, geography, and age. According primacy to the process of design, our work evolves as a response to the particular character of our clients’ program, site and budget. At every scale, the projects focus on integrity of material and craftsmanship, establishing a fundamental relationship between the physical environment, and the art of making architecture. The work of vir.mueller architects has been awarded and published internationally.
