Transparence 16.0 - Hybrid as the Way Forward

Living spaces are continuously evolving- from being a habitat where one mostly spends parts of the day to becoming the epicentre of our daily lives as we move about from one chore to another. Changing lifestyles, technological disruptions, demography and epoch-making incidents like the pandemic call for designs that respond with a dynamism that aligns. A complex that allows for wholesome living and caters to physical, emotional and social well-being is the call of the day.

The theme this year focuses on better and adapted living spaces along with ancillary functions to support our evolving and hybrid lifestyles.
