As we head boldly towards a more confident tomorrow, Architects, designers and builders will play a crucial role in this progression and there is a strong need for these stakeholders to come together and lay out the vision on moving this industry to a level where India is able to retain its heritage architecture in structures to be built and thereby create an identity of its own on the global platform.
The Economic Times has always taken great pride in India's accomplishments and have continuously aligned themselves with the cause of national development. If India has to join the league of developed nations, one essential aspect of this future progression will be the interior design, urban design and urban planning of global cities within India. This conference brings together Indian and global industry barons & visionaries on one platform as they look to share their knowledge & experience of creating structures that align the needs of a progressive nation with designs that define an era.
After the grand success of the 1st and 2nd editions of the Economic Times Architecture & Design Summit, which left a lasting impression on the Indian architectural landscape, the upcoming conference ,i.e., the 3rd edition of the Economic Times A&D Summit 2015 with invaluable inputs from our advisory board. As in the first two editions, this year too we will look to bring together budding and prominent architects, interior designers, landscape architects, consultants & students together on one platform to enable break-thorough discussions & seamless interactions among business communities.
The cities for this year's edition have been carefully chosen, and by staging the event in key southern cities (such as Kochi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Vizag, Coimbatore & Bangalore), we can draw a better roadmap for Architecture & Design in southern India and beyond. By discussing key topics that have captured the imagination through architecture workshops, we can better understand the role of states in aligning architecture with India's transformation agenda and even better map residential & commercial tends in the space of Architecture & Design.
By making a concerted roadmap for Architecture & Design, we can enjoy a better building experience, a superior end result and come up with ideas for sustainable architecture and design. The 3rd edition of the Economic Times A&D Summit 2015 looks to do just that by creating a roadmap for the India of tomorrow through a well thought-out architecture and design conference.
