He studied at the “Sri Aurobindo” International Center of Education in Pondicherry, where he also attends university studies in Building Engineering, Architecture and Urban Planning.

Starting from the 1970’s, he collaborates with research and design studios from all over the world. Between 1970 and 1983 he is coordinator of the group project for the universal city of Auroville (www.auroville.org). In 1998 he is appointed chief architect and urban planner for the Golden City project, built in southern India, near Chennai.

His relentless research in the fields of geobiology, Vastu architecture and holistic health are lifelong passions. Prabhat set himself the goal of investigating the ancient Indian system of architectural knowledge, as also those of other cultures in the world and to made this knowledge available through various modern technologies.
