Office of Architecture (OA) was established in 2012 on the premise that great spaces require the artful orchestration of vision and logistics; that ingenuity can emerge from the limits set by the hard realities of a problem; and that imagination need not belie common sense. OA engages each project with the design sensibility to envision the big idea and the professional savvy to realize its potential.


Aniket Shahane, Principal


Since founding Office of Architecture in 2012, Aniket has overseen the design and execution of a variety of projects – both commissioned and speculative – that have been featured in diverse print and online publications and exhibits including Architectural Record, Dwell, ArchDaily and Storefront for Art and Architecture. Born in India, raised in the U.S., and trained as an architect in Paris, Barcelona, and New York City, Aniket brings to his work a rich set of experiences and an ability to artfully engage diverse groups of people and projects. Prior to establishing OA, Aniket trained in the offices of notable architects Enric Miralles/Benedetta Tagliabue and Joel Sanders as Designer and Project Architect on several award-winning works. He is a licensed architect in New York.

In addition to practice, Aniket is actively involved in architectural education. He currently teaches architecture studios as a Critic in the M.Arch I and M.Arch II programs at the Yale School of Architecture and is a regular invited juror on architecture reviews at Yale University, Columbia University, NYIT, Parsons, Washington University, and the California College of Arts.

Aniket received his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Architecture from Yale University, where he was awarded the Edward Parsons Medal.
