Young architects freshly graduated from M. S. U. Baroda, sat by a roadside cafe mulling over thought of a team work for an ethical and innovative practice of architecture. They work for a short period of time with stalwarts of Ahmedabad and start working on their own by late evenings at residence of one of them. Soon they found enough work to get on their own feet. They kick started a practice in the name of ‘The Associates’. The firm moved out to a commercial space and started its growth. this went on to become (Associated Architects (i) Pvt. Ltd.) and growth continues. The core team of Associated Architects (i) Pvt. Ltd. consists of the four principal architects. Ar. Bhavik Nandi, Ar. Mayank Ghedia, Ar. Rizwan Kadri and Ar. Vatsal Joshi.
