Interview with Nilanjan Bhowal, New Delhi
1.Tell us something about your approach to your projects.
The site, it’s context and the projects spatial requirements are the key determinants of our approach towards a projects. We also look at client requirements and client satisfaction as major parameters to address in a project. And most importantly, the energy saving techniques and achieving a cost effective design.
2. Which kind of projects do you enjoy the most?
We often try to grab opportunities to work on projects that have a bigger scope of creativity and come with a challenging context. But, that been said, we undertake each project (big or small) with the same zest.
3.Do you feel architects and designers should be concerned about environmental sustainability?
Definitely. No Creator can be a Destroyer !! It is the duty of a designer to help protect the world we live in. Sustainability is our first priority when we commence a project and have been acknowledged for our initiatives in that direction.
4.What has been your biggest challenge so far?
I wouldn’t say one specific challenge but I treat my every day as a challenge – to achieve a balance between creativity and functionality is one major challenge so far.
