On January 15th, we closed entries for the TRENDS Excellence Awards for Architecture & Design 2014. In the first year of the awards, we had received 480 submissions of projects. This year, the number stands at 1350 submissions. That’s an exponential increase in participation. A big thank you to all our architects, interior designers, product designers, photographers who shared their work in overwhelming numbers with us this year. Our fundamental promise for judging the TRENDS Awards stands. Our jurors will always be exacting, fair, brutal and will choose only the best. Jury meets will be on their way this and the next month and the winners will be declared at the TRENDS Awards gala in March. Stay tuned for the date. In the meantime, enjoy this month’s edition. Inside the pages, you will find an interview with the very talented, Bangalore-based architect Sandeep Khosla where he talks about that which he values most in architecture. Sunil Patil writes this month’s guest column and in our My View section, we bring together an extraordinary group of architects, such as Kalhan Mattoo, Sunil Kulkarni, Karan Grover amongst others to give their opinion on the highly debated question of sustainable architecture in India. Also, enjoy our selected residential and commercial TRENDS features for the month – definitely do check out the office spaces by Anil Salian and M Moser Associates.
