Talk session by Mr. Akshay Heranjal
An informative talk session was organized by JD Institute of Fashion Technology on the significance of Sustainable Designs and creating innovative solutions for a sustainable future. Various topics such as understanding how each project is unique and sustainable design is a relative and contextual term was explained in detail to the students by Mr. Akshay Heranjal and Ms. Aditi Pai Heranjal, Principal Architects in Purple Ink Studio.
The purple ink studio is an award winning young architectural practice which believes in constantly exploring the parameters of design and blurring the boundaries between architecture, landscape and sustainability. The studio works closely on each program and situates its projects within a wider research context.
They believe in an integrated approach, which is complex, generative and moves beyond the digital techniques. They constantly engage in the practices of ‘Regenerative Architecture’ that focuses on conservation and performance through a focused reduction on the environmental impacts of a built structure.
The Studio is working on experiments which are based in the present day scenario (as prototypes) which when multiplied, would breed into a series of ‘Eco-cities’, set in the future. These experiments focus on the ‘Kilometer Zero’ concept, which strives to generate locally everything that is necessary for our living.”The underlying focus is to integrate the ideas of our architectural theories using a series of integrated/hybrid techniques to develop a new breed of regenerative architecture.
