Subu's recent explorations have focused on how architecture, at an urban scale, can address moments of cultural collisions while preserving the identity of those who are forcibly displaced. Before joining KSP Subu's previous work experience was for architecture firms in Albuquerque, NM, and Knoxville, TN. There she had opportunities to design a historic community theatre, a high school, and corporate office space.
She graduated with a B.Arch from the University of Tennessee, where she received a distinguished design award for her undergraduate thesis.
During the downtime required due to COVID-19, Subu co-founded g.lab — a visual design lab where members can study creativity and rapidly shifting imagery through abstract studies and drawings. The results are sometimes whimsical, sometimes architectural, always fluid. They are currently exploring the role of self-narration through the process of rapid layering.
After hours, Subu enjoys exploring Chicago on her bike, drinking London Fogs, and planning her next weekend excursion at local coffee shops.
