Devendra Contractor (SF79) Talks 圣达菲, Art, 和 Architecture
December 19, 2018 | By Kimberly Uslin
“I always tell people that St. John’s is the best education for architects,” says Devendra Contractor (SF79).
Devendra grew up in India, but his mother was raised in Taos. After graduating from St. John’s, he says he kept finding his way back to the L和 of Enchantment.
“I try to leave, but I keep coming back,” he laughs.
Living in an artistic community is helpful in his line of work, but Devendra credits St. John’s with much of his success in the architectural field.
The St. John’s education, he says, has had unending influence on his work.
“Once you’ve gone to school there, you don’t ever stop being a student of what you’ve studied.”
