Talking Design with Dipen Gada

Architect Dipen Gada believes that a designer must take on the responsibility of creating a space where the “built and non-built exist harmoniously”. “For this, we consider the site, the land, as a canvas and the structure as the art adorning it, beautiful and timeless,” says the man who heads Dipen Gada & Associates.
