Kumar And Swamy Architects was founded by Mr C. R Shivakumar in the year 1969. As a firm, it has always been in the area of institutional architecture. In more recent times, from 1990 onward the focus has been on educational, health and sporting infrastructure.
From the early nineties, the firm was headed and run by Mr C. S. Harsha and Ms Sanchali Harsha who are the son and daughter-in-law of Mr C.R Shivakumar. Under their aegis, the firm won a competition for Mallya Aditi International School which was possibly one of the first international schools in the country. It was in the year 1990, this led to the firm designing around 40 plus educational campuses in the last 30 years.
the firm is being carried forward by the third generation, Paromita Harsha (architect and artist) and Suchitra Harsha (studying to be a visual artist and interior and product designer)
