Bringing The Connection with Nature Back- Future of Design 2021 Virtual Event

Date: 26 October 2021.

Recently Mr. Kadri was speaking at the Future of Design 2021 virtual event organized by BW Business World on 10th April. The event was graced by various design thinkers and leaders in the design industry from across the country.

During the event, while addressing the challenge of how to bring the connection with nature back, Kadri stated, “The five principles of healthy cities are: transport-led development, city country fingers, urban-rural transect – zoning of urban to rural and forest areas, walkable neighborhoods and buildings with set-backs to allow for an active street life.” He added, “The key to better health lies in restoring our connection with nature and fostering interaction as social beings. These are the two pillars.” On this note, Mr. Kadri has addressed the importance of Biophilic design - designing modern buildings with integrated elements of nature into it.

IMK Architects – one of the tops architects in India, has always focused the practice on social consciousness and urban ecological sensitivity. Today, a unique, collaborative SCRUM-based design process that involves intense workshops with all project stakeholders, ensures the effective and efficient delivery of holistic design solutions from buildings to city master plans — vibrant, dynamic, healthy, and robust spaces where people thrive.

IMK Architects strongly stands by Biophilic design. This top architectural firm in Mumbai has led several architecture and town planning projects. Some of their notable projects are for Tata’s, JSW and the Reliance group, Hotels & Resorts for Taj & Club Mahindra, College Campuses for Symbiosis and The Supreme Court of India, etc.

Over the years, what remained constant, is IMK Architects’ focus on exploring the potential of architecture within the paradigms of culture and civilization to serve the needs and aspirations of the communities it serves.
