Sudhir Jambhekar


Sudhir Jambhekar joined FXFOWLE in 2000 as a Senior Partner when the firm he co-founded, Jambhekar Strauss, merged with FXFOWLE. He is an architect and urban designer with nearly 40 years of experience on a wide variety of project types and scales. Sudhir's passion for design, art, and intellectual exchange with the next generation contributes a valued diversity to the design dialogue at FXFOWLE. 

Sudhir approaches design as a perceptive search for meaning and usefulness, narrowing the infinite possibilities for a project to an idea that balances the forces at work in each. His approach is rooted in the belief that all elements are part of the larger whole, and each element of the built environment is not only worthy of, but requires, design excellence. Sudhir won the prestigious design competition for Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Crossing Bridge in Dubai, which will measure 1.7 kilometers with an arch measuring 205 meters high and 667 meters long. Once completed, the bridge will be the largest and tallest spanning arch bridge in the world. Sudhir also oversaw the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) project, a community that will house professionals working within the financial sector and related industries. FXFOWLE's seven parcels within the site will contain over 8 million square feet of offices, hotels, conference center, shops, cultural, and recreational facilities in different typologies and densities to appeal to different people and to meet a broad range of demands. 

Sudhir's projects have won several major design awards, including design awards from Architectural Review for the master plan for Nakheel in Dubai, the AIA New York Chapter for the Queens Museum of Art competition entry and the Perth Amboy High School competition entry, a Design Award from AIA New Jersey for the Walter Rand Transportation Center Expansion and an Award of Merit from AIA New York State for the Jamaica Transportation Center. The Society of American Registered Architects granted design awards to the Queens Museum of Art competition entry, Hudson Bergen Light Rail Transit System, Hoboken Light Rail Station, and Williamsburg Community Center competition entry. In addition, his designs for the Midtown East Development Plan and the Washington, DC Metro Station Canopy Program competition were honored with awards from the Boston Society of Architects.


Sudhir received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Bombay and a Master of Architecture and Urban Design from Columbia University. He is a registered architect in New York and New Jersey, a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and the Society of Registered Architects, and is a Fellow of the Institute of Urban Design and a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. Sudhir is LEED accredited by the US Green Building Council.
