Design in architecture as an opportunity for a more sustainable world

The Atelier school has received an award in the Global Architecture & Design Awards 2018. A project in which Paarth Garg, a student of the Master of Strategic Design Labs, participated as Co-founder and Creative Strategist.

The emergence of new materials and flexible architectural structures calls into question the permanence of the architecture known to date. It is not uncommon nowadays to see sustainable buildings or those already built being fully redesigned to adapt to the changing needs of society.

From among the new creations of flexible architecture, we can mention The Atelier school in Bangalore, whose sustainable building has received an award in the Global Architecture & Design Awards 2018 in the institutional category. A transformative educational project located in Bangalore (India) conceptualized and founded by Biome Environmental Solutions.

The project was performed by an international and multidisciplinary team made up of experts in education, strategic design, actuarial consultancy, architecture, marketing and communication, technology and other disciplines. Paarth Garg, a student of the Master of Strategic Design Labs, is co-founder of the project and participated as Creative Strategist.

The Master of Strategic Design Labs is one of the three possible paths of the Masters of Design and Innovation at IED Madrid. Training programmes in which new dynamic and interdisciplinary working methods are generated, which allow students to develop their work in a cross-cutting manner by leading successful projects.

The Atelier is based on the three fundamental pillars of the Biome design studio: ecology, architecture and water. Under the educational approach of Reggio Emilia, the space is understood as the third teacher that encourages relationships, communication and encounters between children, making architecture an environment for collaborative learning and experimentation.

The building was visited by the designers from the latest edition of the Masters of Design and Innovation during their trip to India. An example of how the professional practice of design and sustainable development offer an opportunity for collaboration and interaction between designers and organisations. Like society, architecture through design seeks to escape from rigid structures in search of a more sustainable future.
