Professor A G Rao

Prof Rao has been teaching at the Industrial Design Center (IDC) of IIT Bombay, the country’s premier design institute for nearly 40 years. He runs a unique project called the Bamboo Studio at IDC. He has been studying bamboo as a medium for the last couple of decades, and works with craftspersons and artisans across the country.

Prof Rao has been designing and conducting some very unique workshops for The Pomegranate Workshop™ over the past year and has introduced the children to some fundamental concepts in design even as they had a whole load of fun in the process. His methods involve very hands on techniques where children conceptualize, visualize and execute in one seamless effort.
