Amit Srivastava is the Director (India) for the Centre of Asian and Middle Eastern Architecture (CAMEA) based at the University of Adelaide, in Australia. Having trained and practiced as an architect in India, Srivastava’s primary work focused on the architectural and construction histories of colonial and postcolonial India. His other current research focuses on the themes of transnational exchange of materials, skills, and construction processes across the Indian Ocean world, from Africa and the Middle East to South East Asia and Australia, with special interest in cases of South-South cooperation. He is also working on a project looking at Australian Architects in Asia and its impact on the material culture in Australia.
