Architecture and Design Summit 2016ET Edge
Great design can be an escape from the ordinary and the humdrum of routine, and as someone at the vanguard of great design, it is our responsibility to ensure that we create a stellar experience that can be savored for long to come while respecting the climatic, cultural and physical attributes of the destination in question.
Creators will always prevail, be it in architecture, design, artists or whoever else. Companies that have been at the creative forefront are the most valuable companies on the face of the planet.
For the entire Architecture & Design fraternity, it’s not important to just see transformation as it stands today, but where it will move in the future. It is important to recognise that in terms of our cities, we must recognise what it wants to be.
Architects, urban planners and designers have been severed from each other. As a result, planners have lost the ability to visualize their designs and architects end up chewing on the leftovers of planners and urban design.
I think what we’ve seen in terms of spatial disparity is symptomatic also of economic disparity. I don’t know what we can do to build economic parity, but it is symptomatic of a far deeper economic malaise.
Architecture has and will always be a source of inspiration, in the future I see architects as being data scientists and architecture to shape, interact, react and mould itself in real-time. As functions will keep evolving, so will architecture.
A brand is where people put their trust, and in the real estate space I would simply say that when you are buying property from a brand, the trust with which it comes is where a brand gets separated from a commodity.
When a customer is not sure of what to buy, he will fall back on a brand because it takes care of his requirements and demands. Brands represent quality, utility and so much more since they synchronize with the requirements of customers.
