We were pleasantly delighted to be a part of the Pitch Night on Sustainable Building Incubator at Impact Hub. As part of the architecture community, we were able to contribute as sponsorship to support as well as provide as a cash prize to the winner of the competition, in encouragement of their more-to-come changes in the community.
Rather than just a competition, it was more of a gathering, packed with innovative ideas and solutions. We were presented many ways to use the utility available in a more green and sustainable manner - repurpose, upcycle, recycle the resources for generations to come. Awin-win resolution to minimize waste in order to help build a greener community.
Such a memorable night it was to have spent with such incredible, young individuals who look forward to and already making immense impact on the environment as well as the community as a whole.
