Ar. Vicky Chan emphasized on the architect’s role in combining design, technology and sustainability for designing buildings and cities of the future. He also concurred that the collaboration between experts from various domains is a long process but can give some amazing results in terms of the end-product.
Ar Chan rightly pointed out during his talk on implementability of radical technologies or concepts, “On a smaller scale of a built-in space the scope of experimenting and correcting is more and within budgets. However, as the scale of the project increases such as a building and further to city planning, the implementation of new ideas become difficult. But in Asian countries given the fast paced economy, the revisions are accepted along with implementation, unlike western countries where the same is not possible and by the time a lapse is identified, it becomes too late or too costly to implement.”
Remal Behl, Head for Enterprise Business, Havells India Ltd concluded the session by thanking the eminent speaker and emphasizing on Havells approach towards providing energy efficient products and promoting sustainable tech solutions.
