Celebrated on the first Monday of every October, World Architecture Day was set up by the Union International des Architects (UIA) back in 2005 to 'remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat'.
All that glitters is gold - and red and black! With these resplendent colours, the stage was set for the 13th CONSTRUCTION WORLD Architect and Builder (CWAB) Awards, held at Hotel Four Seasons in Mumbai on September 11.
Celebrated on the first Monday of every October, World Architecture Day was set up by the Union International des Architects (UIA) back in 2005 to “remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat”.
Between the environment exterior to a building and the interior environment lies the Façade. 'The first and most important function of the Façade is to act as a filter between the inside and outside environment,' says Manit Rastogi, Founder Partner, Morphogenesis.
Morphogenesis has won the architectural competition to design what will be the worlds largest office building - Surat Diamond Bourse - at 6,500,000 sq ft, touted to become the centre of the international diamond trade.
CWAB 2.0 (denoting the second decade) is here and how! The grand evening once again recognised and awarded India´s Top Architects and Builders, along with the introduction of a new category - Noteworthy Projects.
One year and the change in mindset and expectations is evident! Like last year, CW once again brought together select building specialists at its head office in Mumbai last month. While last year, the industry felt ´the good days are yet to arrive´ and that ´something is missing´, this year optimism has been at the core of all discussions.
