Sheila Sri Prakash is known for her teaching activity at renowned universities. She had an inspirational conference at “Ion Mincu” Architecture and Planning University in Bucharest sending a message to Romanian students: “One thing that I find interesting about architects is that we are all creatives and we seldom work together. The challenge is therefore how to work together in spite of being creative because we need to collaborate for a cause. That is my agenda: to see that the younger generation gets together.”
