Madhavi Desai and Gita Balakrishnan were felicitated for their Special contribution to the industry. The special award for Innovative Young Architected was an initiative by Delta, thus aptly named WADe Delta Innovative Young Architect Award. Presentations by our other partners Nolte, Amulya, and Oligo were quite stimulating.
WADe India event 2016 was a warm space celebrating women-led development, bright with glowing faces. WADe is specially thankful to all the husbands and relatives of Awardees who have accompanied them to WADe India and added so much more happiness to this celebration. Special thanks to 9 year old little Leah, daughter of architects Reny Lijo and Lijo Jos from Thrissur who patiently sat beside her parents and attended the whole event. WADe extends heart warming thanks to Mrs. Usha Khosla, mother of Annkur Khosla who accompanied her daughter to make this celebration more special. She extended her love to others around and made the WADe team feel quite relaxed.
Since WADe is walking an untrodden path, it has faced several challenges in setting the concept. No amount of Thanking would be enough for expressing the roles that Jury members played for WADe India. All we can say is, “For than Jury, more than Friends for WADe and more than Dependable.” The event was concluded with a brief speech by Pragath Dvivedi, Director, Bigsea Marcom (I) Pvt. Ltd.
