be part of WADe Asia 2019 6-7* September Delhi

As Sponsor / Speaker / Jury, write to us at | * Tentative

editorial Opinions received from attendees reiterated the objectives of WADe Asia: Coming from a background where a woman is expected to comply with a defined set of tasks, WADe helps the whole community to garner a different perspective. Many of us still carry a good dose of guilt when as a woman we are unable to stick to the social norms assigned to us. The fact that we are unaware of our rights and importance. In such a backdrop, I feel an event like WADe is extremely important. It helps in redefining our legacy in a contemporary framework. It inspires us and helps us understand that we are worth it.

- Bandana Jain


The movement has begun! Conceptualized in 2013, initiated in 2016, the platform for celebrating Women-led Development in Architecture, Art & Design, WADe Asia, is working to document the contribution and progression of Women in Design. We are glad to add ‘Women in Engineering’ from 2018. WADe is the common ground for women in built space and creative pursuits to meet, network, learn and share, started with the following objectives:

"Perfect ocean of Opportunities, Connections, a Boon for students, amazing platform for Professionals – that’s WADe Asia."

- Sheen Pandita

"Listening to professional journeys of stalwarts awakened me. Interactions with Namita Singh, Revathi Kamath and Raj Rewal’s presentation are sure to be guiding lights for me. WADe Asia has been very inspiring and I am charged to take my projects ahead in great spirits."

- Anita Dake

• Ensuring visibility of Women-led projects • Bridging Mentorship

"Talking about Indian society it is difficult for women architects to gain the trust of clients. Knowing about successful women architects gives us the confidence to stand and take our work to a different level. The concept of WADe Asia is great!"

• Standing by those who want to return & restart • Encouraging, Sharing & Learning • Celebrating their Life, Work & Achievements

- Abhidha Jain

• Rewards & Recognition In our years of experience in the industry, we realised women hardly network. Something always comes-up that ranks above networking in a women’s priority list. WADe Asia is working to bridge this gap. There is a lot of need for women to meet and interact with each other. It is important for young ones to get an opportunity to listen to their Role Models. There is need for assurance that things are possible. There is a need to meet women in flesh & blood who have broken glass ceilings that others thought was impossible.

“WADe reconfirms that being women is our biggest strength. WADe makes women proud and also inspires the attendees to believe that nothing is impossible to achieve.”

- Deepali Mishra

"It is an amazing concept, WADe Asia, an amazing platform for me and my daughter. Thanks!"

- Manish Dinesh Shah

readers' reviews Thank you readers for the responses! We can be contacted at

Love pouring in for WADe Asia 2018 WADe is the only award that does not quantify quality of work with its built up sq.ft. And that is the only reason I showcased the smallest institution designed by my firm. We have worked on nearly 400 Government primary Schools in India to improve learning and built environment under the program called 'Anandshala'. The methods of operation to conceptualising spaces to building them take a completely different path then usual architectural practise. Thank you for recognising this fact that excellence in design is not only based on the quantum of work! Thank you for creating such important platform! - Ar Brinda Parth Shah BPS Architects, Rajkot ASIA

What you have created - the space, the energy, the team, the immense possibilities of exploration and exchange - all of this is incredible. May you go from strength to strength. - Sumana Chandrashekar India Foundation for the Arts, Bangalore

It is also about a common ground for women in creative pursuits to meet, network, learn and share. The event was overwhelmingly received by the 1100+ fraternity and was graciously graced by the crème de la crème. Not only from India but the prodigies from Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Indonesia, London, and Dubai also graced the occasion. There was participation from the Government ministries including National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC), Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) and NIESBUD.

Personalised mentorship and keynotes from the architecture and design influencers from India and across the Indian sub-continent gave the event a new meaning in itself. One of the key intentions of the event is to highlight and establish the eternal spirit of womanhood in all walks of art, built spaces and design which boldly reflected through different happenings at WADe.
