SAOTA Principal Phillippe Fouché: speaker at NatCon 2022, Mumbai
The Association of Consulting Civil Engineers (India) invited SAOTA Principal Phillippe Fouché to speak at the National Conversation (NatCon) 2022 in Mumbai this past weekend.
The two-day conference was held at Sahara Star Hotel in Mumbai with well-known industry experts such as Michel Rojkind from Rojkind Architects, Kai-Uwe Bergmann from BIG, Mariana Gabugueira from Hadid Architects, and Hamid Hassanzadah from Parametric Architecture leading talks. The convention hosted 1800+ delegates with nine international and nine national speakers presenting on the topic: The Future.
Phillippe opened the conference and shared insights around The Future of Spaces. The talk was centred around the idea of future spaces being open to nature – responding to its primal landscape, having a strong connection and relationship with its environment and inviting light in – being flexible, community orientated and energy efficient. All core principles embodied in SAOTA’s practice and the studio’s values, Light Space Life.
We’re honoured to be part of a dynamic conference and to share thoughts and ideas about the future of design.
