Ever since his graduation over two decades ago, Rajesh Kumar has been a strong proponent of construction techniques that take up less energy and are not dangerous to the environment. This dedication toward an architecture that works hand in hand with the earth led Rajesh Kumar to create his own firm R-LEEF.
