ADS believes architecture is an artistic expression as far as it transcends its purely utilitarian, technical and rational realm, and turns into a metaphoric expression of the lived world, human condition and context. Their aim is to provide a “Soul in the Shell”.
Over a slim span of ten years, completed projects of ADS have earned numerous accolades –more than 37 international and national awards and many published works in several magazines world-over. In 2014, their work was selected by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, for publication and a travelling exhibition –“Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities”. Today ADS is one of the best known young design firms in the country. In a recent critical design publication the firm is placed among the top 50 Young Design firms in the word.
