APAC's 10 Most Innovative Architecture Leaders pl1

“Committed to create innovative & Workable Solutions”

The changing culture of architecture in modern India, both as a lifestyle and as a profession, has been eye-opening. In terms of lifestyle, we never predicted the extent to which architecture and design could affect us as well as the society and culture we live in, nor did we predict how deeply symbolic of our beliefs and attitudes they’d become. As a profession, the huge wave of development and technology that caused us to try and ape everything that didn’t belong to us, has made us a question and search for our own identity and provoked us to revisit the solid traditional roots and foundation of Indian architecture. So, here I like to mention one firm who committed to creating innovative & Workable Solutions.

GDP Architects began as a small group of designers in 1990, with just eight staff. Nearly three decades, it has since grown to over 500 staff, with several offices located throughout the country and a wide range of clients both locally and abroad. The firm has a long-standing reputation for providing the highest level of professional service, having completed numerous large and small scale projects, from private and high-end residential projects to institutions of higher learning; from commercial work and transportation buildings to complex mixed-use developments and hotels. 

Active collaboration with clients, consultants, and specialists enables them to achieve design excellence. Experience with international partners and projects has provided their firm with invaluable cross-cultural and technical expertise. Their portfolio includes a variety of building types such as residential buildings, educational buildings, hospitals, universities, commercial developments, hotels, and hospitality-related projects, transportation buildings, government office buildings, corporate offices, and mixed-use developments.

They have also been involved in refurbishment and renovation projects. Their work can be found across Malaysia and internationally. Aside from comprehensive, professional architectural services, they also provide consultancy services in the following areas:

• Master Planning

 • Interior Design

 • Feasibility Studies

 • Project Management

 • Visual Communication

At GDP, they take the approach that a practice, which addresses context, creates its own culture and environment. Their works are not confined to a singular architectural style but are expressions of the diverse minds within the office. They are committed to creating innovative, workable solutions to respond to the unique character of each project. Their approach to design is thus a collective effort, which guides design decisions and the individual thinking processes. The role of Indian media in architecture and design has also remained very limited. Changing lifestyles have transformed the meaning of architecture for many. While changing lifestyles have impacted architecture, the profession needs to ruminate on how it can in turn make a lasting impact on transforming lifestyles.
