AKDA is part of "20 under 35"

Our firm has been chosen to be part of "20 under 35", an exhibition showcasing the work of 20 young Indian  designers below the age of 35. The participants are selected from the fields of architecture, apparel and textile design, graphic design and products. We are one of 5 architecture firms this year. Woo Hoo!

"20 under 35" is an intitiative of DesignXDesign and Alliance Francaise.

The exhibition is at the Gallerie Romain Rolland, Alliance Francaise at 72, Lodi Estate, New Delhi. It opens on the 7th of February and runs through till the 27th of February.

We will be there on the 7th at 6:30pm at the opening. See you there.

About the Exhibit

“When we received the brief from DxD, we were keen to design a spatial intervention rather than a wall-mounted flat panel. Instead of fabricating a new installation that would become redundant in the future, we decided to use an existing bookshelf in our conference room (one of the first pieces of furniture in the office), that was designed as a modular system and then adjusted for peculiarity. The bookshelf was repurposed for the exhibit; firstly, to stay true to our sustainable attitude, where we are innovative with existing resources and secondly, the modular system designed eight years ago helps to demonstrate the design ethos, while lending itself well to the nature of the exhibit. After the duration of the exhibition is over, the installation can go back to being the bookshelf; albeit with a fresh attitude.”
