4th All India Stone Architectural Awards (AISAA) 2012

One of our colleagues, on seeing our works on this website, had recently encouraged us to present one of projects for the AISAA 2012 awards for excellence and creativity in the use of stone in a building, this case in particular was the Chapel of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour-Mashem, Canacona and guess what? We too couldn’t believe this, but we won! Instituted by the Centre for Development of Stones (CDOS), Jaipur, this was its 4th edition and the awards were presented by the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot and the state Industries Minister, Rajendra Pareek at the India Stonemart 2013, Jaipur on the 31st of January 2013.

Here are the jury’s comments on the citation we received: “Sensitive use of local laterite stone on a challenging site. The stone use draws on the natural laterite terrain and expresses the building contextually along with its surrounding.”
