The Ahmedabad Design Week 4.0 Theme



Across Paradigms

T.R.A.P - Technologically Revolutionising Across Paradigms is an expression which states that technology is an inseparable entity in today's time. Innovations in sectors are impossible without the assistance and integration of technology and design is no exception.
From mobile phones to drones that soar aloft to safeguard our skies, aren't we all trapped into this torrent of change that technology brings with it ?!
