Transparence 15.0 aims to redefine design and architecture with the theme: “Well-Build, Buildings for the Well-Being of People”

The 15th Edition of Transparence is here and is all set to redefine architecture design centred on well-being in the built environment. This landmark edition aims to acknowledge the larger role of encouraging sensitive designs for our built public realm. It allows participants to revisit some of the past themes of Transparence that looked at public spaces (typologies including Healthcare, Institution, Commercial & Retail, Workplace, Hospitality, Transportation) with the greater objective to design for health and well-being.

Panel discussion on Well-Build

Buildings and their environs are like sets of our life’s play- from being born in hospitals, to learning in schools and colleges; from working in offices to the transport system that leads us there; from meeting our household needs to taking breaks for rejuvenation and recreation. An average urban Indian would spend anywhere between 70-80 % of their lives indoors.

This panel discussion aims to bring forth the need to imbibe wellbeing into our designs, discuss strategies for doing the same within different building typologies while also contributing towards placemaking initiatives in our cities. Let’s seek answers on how as Architects we can encourage people to lead healthier and active lifestyles; support both physical and mental wellbeing and develop coherent and integrated communities.
