NEW DELHI, OCTOBER 3: A team of students from World University of Design, mentored by a faculty member were adjudged silver winners at the 'Expressions' art installation competition at Festival of Architecture and Interior Designing (FOAID). Maintaining its reputation of bringing creative minds from across the country, FOAID provided a common platform for stalwarts and future designers to interact on newer facets of the design fraternity.

The theme of the competition was to celebrate 5 years of FOAID by using 5 elements in the installation.

The installation made by WUD team was a tribute to the tree which is symbol of knowledge and growth. "The tree of emergence" represents five stages of emergence and process of design through different textures of stainless steel.

Mani Singh, 2nd year student at WUD and team leader for the team said, “We worked really hard on this installation from purchasing material to working with stainless steel, trying out different textures to making each and every joinery detail. The full-fledged workshops of WUD provided us all the tools and machines that were needed. Our mentor Aditi Parikh helped us a lot. It was teamwork and dedication of everyone that we have achieved this.”

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Vice Chancellor, World University of Design said, “It was astonishing to see the dedication and commitment shown by these budding designers for this competition. Starting from concept generation, material sourcing, working with various tools and techniques, fixing till finishing, everything was done by them with their hands. With accessto outstanding workshops equipped with all the state-of-the-art machines at our campus students were able to bring this beautiful concept a reality.”
