The 5th Edi­tion of The Eco­nomic Times Ar­chi­tec­tural and De­sign Sum­mit 2017, held on 6 Septem­ber 2017 at The Sher­a­ton Ho­tel in New Delhi, wit­nessed the pres­ence of lead­ing ar­chi­tects, in­te­rior de­sign­ers and se­nior del­e­gates from renowned or­ga­ni­za­tions across the coun­try. Co-pow­ered by Nero­lac, the theme of the sum­mit was De­sign­ing for Diver­si­fied In­dia.

Manit Ras­togi, Founder Part­ner of Mor­pho­gen­e­sis, gave a pre­sen­ta­tion on glo­cal views on De­sign Per­son­al­i­sa­tion, wherein he talked about In­dia’s di­ver­sity from an ar­chi­tec­tural per­spec­tive and how pas­sive de­sign, re­source op­ti­miza­tion, con­tex­tual iden­tity and live­abil­ity is the new ar­chi­tec­tural mantra.

The spot­light ses­sions ad­dressed by Sanjay Joshi, Se­nior VP & Busi­ness Head, Ever­est In­dus­tries, and Ni­raj Borikar, Head Mar­ket­ing at Fun­der­max, gave in­sights on how the ma­te­ri­als used in ar­chi­tec­ture can be used across lo­ca­tions and with dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions, keep­ing in mind the huge di­ver­sity of the coun­try.

A panel dis­cus­sion hosted by Srini­vas Murthy G., Chief Ex­ec­u­tive and Ar­chi­tect at SMG De­sign, on Chaos The­ory: De­sign­ing for Diver­si­fied In­dia, dis­cussed why tech­no­log­i­cal so­lu­tions don’t re­ally bring out the real ar­chi­tec­ture of our past or the real In­dia. Panelists in­cluded Dik­shu C Kukreja, Ar­chi­tect and Ur­ban Plan­ner, CP Kukreja Ar­chi­tects; Sapna Ku­mar, Di­rec­tor at Chap­man Tay­lor; Amit Gupta, Found­ing Part­ner at Stu­dio Sym­bio­sis; Ka­mal Meat­tle, Chair­man of Pa­harpur Busi­ness Cen­tre, and Dr. Vib­huti Sachdev, Dean, An­sal Univer­sity.

The clos­ing ses­sion was marked by the launch of the book “In­te­rior and Ex­te­rior Color Guides” by Peeyush Bach­laus, Head Mar­ket­ing at Kan­sai Nero­lac Paints who ex­pressed his views on the im­por­tance of colors in our lives.

Ex­press­ing plea­sure at the suc­cess of the event, Deepak Lamba, Pres­i­dent – Times Strate­gic So­lu­tions, com­mented: “This is in­deed a piv­otal sum­mit where lead­ers can con­verge on a com­mon plat­form and share their views and thoughts on how In­dia, be­ing a com­plex mar­ket due to its dif­fer­ent lan­guages, cul­ture, habits and cli­mate dif­fer­ences, can be taken as an op­por­tu­nity for the A&D com­mu­nity and mul­ti­ply op­por­tu­ni­ties by be­ing more in­no­va­tive.
