ARCASIA-IAP Young Architects Collaborative in Lahore, Pakistan January 23, 2016

Architecture is a process of design at a specific location for one or a group of people who share similar purposes with their own characteristic. Architects as creative lot of professionals many a times tend to branch out to other disciplines but use their training in school to nurture and improvise what they do best.

Life is a process of evolution. To ‘survive’ evolution, one must be able to adapt to the changes logically and sincerely. Design should be able to evolve to adapt efficiently to its locality, weather, users, functions, advantages or disadvantages and that is what we call ‘sensible design’. Today’s young architect is unique and brings together a strong history that combines compromises and respects the knowledge and ideas to customize a personal design philosophy. These new generations are designers, academia's, musicians, set & furniture designers, event & project managers, Choreographers, interior consultants and even fashion consultants.
