Chandini is responsible for managing the day to day running of specific competitions. She writes copy for, and edits, competition documents; manages project timelines, and liaises with clients and competitors to ensure our competitions run fairly and effectively. She also works closely with our directors to coordinate internal processes and research new work opportunities.

Since joining MRC in 2020, Chandini has worked on many international projects – including the first fully digital competitions that MRC ran throughout the pandemic. This included the coordination of invited competitions for a high-profile client team on eleven diverse landmarks, including a university, public plaza, digital art museum, calligraphy academy and non-profit foundation headquarters.

Chandini was also part of the team involved in the selection process for the National Gallery, UK, and her portfolio of recent projects includes those for Balliol College, Oxford; Ministry of Culture, KSA; and Public Investment Fund (PIF), KSA.

Energised by problem-solving and with meticulous attention to detail, Chandini enjoys working on complex projects, with particular interest in sustainable design and the role architecture must play in tackling environmental challenges.

Chandini has a Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Sheffield and a Master’s degree in World History from the University of Cambridge.
