Industry leaders celebrate World Architecture Day

Shyam Motwani


Shyam Motwani, EVP and Business Head, Godrej Locks said, "As we celebrate World Architecture Day, we would like to extend our gratitude towards the architects for the designs they create to develop residential and commercial spaces to meet the project requirements. The needs of consumers are persistently evolving with the passage of time and therefore, architects have to keep up with the ever-changing trends of the industry. We truly believe that they help bring dreams to reality, through their innovative design spaces. At Godrej Locks & Architectural Fittings and Systems business, we trust that gifted architects can make a significant contribution towards meeting a project's safety objectives, and also integrate the crucial aspects of sustainability in the current times. Therefore, to further strengthen our relationship with the architect community, we recently launched the 'Godrej Value Co-Creators Club' which is aimed at enabling a free flow of information so that their feedback can be incorporated while planning a new product development or understanding the market trends. Additionally, we are also planning to introduce a recognition programme to celebrate their contributions and establish an annual awards ceremony to salute the great minds in the architecture community titled 'The GeeVees'."

Kishan


Kishan Jain, Director at Goldmedal Electricals said, "Indian homes and offices are fast moving towards the adoption of smart & futuristic designs. Taking cognizance of this, Indian architects have taken initiative to move towards enabling such design spaces to come to life. At Goldmedal Electricals, we truly believe that architects are of one our most important stakeholders/influencers. They act as a vital touchpoint between us and our customers, to educate and share knowledge about the offerings and innovativeness of our products. Architects and designers have consistently supported the latest trends in smart home automation by integrating tech-based designs in projects, further motivating companies like ours, to constantly research and develop top quality tech products. This World Architecture Day we express our immense gratitude towards the architect community and applaud them for the exceptional designs they create, catering to the different needs and tastes of every individual. We at Goldmedal Electricals salute every architect who supports us in re-designing spaces and upgrading the lifestyles of customers."

Rajesh


Rajesh Uttamchandani, Director at Syska said, "The objective of World Architecture Day is to show appreciation and support towards the architect community and commend them for the exceptional designs they create to ramp-up any commercial or residential space. Indian architects have been implementing sustainable strategies in building designs and have been working towards bringing unique lighting effects on structures with architectural elements, for both indoor and outdoor applications as well as for decorative and functional purposes. While cost is always a top consideration, designers have been spending more energies on creating environmentally friendly strategies that not only offer large savings on time, but also positively affect the air quality, conserve energy resources, and drive the country towards a regenerative tomorrow. At Syska, we believe that architects and designers are major influencers who support the usage of sustainable products such as LED lights in their projects. Designing spaces sustainably is not a daunting prospect, in fact this phenomenon is gaining momentum especially in the current times. A qualified architect carefully understands the necessities and interests of its clients and offers sustainable architecture approaches that best suffice the core objective and budget of the project. On this occasion, we at Syska continue to support and salute every architect who has been working with us in reshaping spaces and designs to enhance the lifestyles of consumers."

Pranesh


Pranesh Chhibber, Country Director, Canadian Wood said, "As we celebrate the World Architecture Day, I am reminded of a famous quote by the celebrated architect Frank Gehry "Architecture should speak of its time and place but yearn for timelessness". Frankly, architecture is a representation of how we see ourselves and the world, which is why it is an integral part of our culture, the way it has been shaping communities existence since ages. It is more than just the design and construction of houses and buildings, it is actually impacting how the society lives and operates. Global warming and the COVID-19 pandemic are posing some unique challenges that have triggered humans across the world to adapt to the changes we witnessed around us. Accordingly, architecture too has begun to look at things afresh around our societies and began to reinvent and discover newer opportunities and possibilities in how people will live and work in the new normal. Amongst many considerations, health and wellness have gained huge precedence. Modern architectural practices are anticipated to promote eco-conscious living through green buildings made using natural materials such as wood, more than ever. We are optimistic about the emerging trend in the years to come that architecture will disrupt existing lifestyles and will responsibly make the world a sustainable and thereby a better place to live in."
