This year’s GeeVees Awards, curated by the Festival of Architecture and Interior Design (FOAID) is an industry recognition platform dedicated to celebrating the most innovative and conscious ideas in architecture and interior design. The award has been conceived as an extension of the Godrej Value Co-Creators Club that was launched by the brand, last year. Currently, there are over 700 architects who are part of this incentive program. Commenting on the unique industry award platform, Shyam Motwani, EVP & Business Head at Godrej Locks & Architectural Fittings and Systems, said, “Architects and interior designers play a very important role in building a planet that is sustainable and safer for our future generations. With GeeVees, we want to build a nexus of thought leaders who are passionate about our planet and will rally to inspire like-minded AID professionals towards building designs that leave a positive impact on our society”. The GeeVees award will recognize work across industries like hospitality, residential villas and bungalows, product, art & furniture, as well as public and institutional buildings. The categories will be divided into two broad segments of architecture and interior designing. The GeeVees Awards will bring together architects, interior designers, builders, developers, PMCs, and allied members of the fraternity to set the benchmark for the future of design in the country. The GeeVees Awards will also provide a platform for young designers to network and learn from stalwarts in the industry.
