Buildings 2021 & Beyond

MGS Architecture celebrates its 16th Anniversary along with architects, interior designers, and the real estate fraternity. In this issue, we invite them to share their thoughts on what the built environment should be, what should change, and what should be taken from India’s eco-sensitive architecture of the past. The unanimous belief is that designing and constructing buildings should be for the long term, with a people-centric design approach; and increased interconnectedness with the help of technology; in fact, a more holistic approach to design is required in order to meet all the criteria, as mentioned below, for experiencing a fulfilling lifestyle.

Townships and Community living: Spaces that demarcate the private from the public are blurring as technology is making cities more interconnected. The concept of work from home and walk to office is becoming a reality. Creating inclusive spaces such as parks with clubs, playgrounds, and gyms etc within the premises are enabling interaction amongst residents of all age groups, fostering communication and mutually enjoyable functions.

Smart Cities: The concept of a Smart City envisages enhancing the lives of its residents by enabling improved efficiencies through modern infrastructure, systems, and services, along with safety, and affordability. Digitisation is influencing the designing and construction of Smart Cities, along with their anticipated high performance.

Sustainable Architecture: There is a call for increased focus on creating green buildings that are energy-efficient, consume minimum building materials and other resources, reduce wastage, and are sustainable. These buildings bring added value by way of healthier and more economical living.

Precast / modular construction: These new building technologies enable faster construction and build more economical and better quality structures. Forward-looking developers are opting for these proven techniques to save time, money and precious resources.

We thank all of you for taking the time out to pen your views on these current topics, and look forward to your participation in our upcoming issues.
Happy Reading!
