We believe, honest intentions and thoughtful action creates remarkable impact.
This is our guiding principle in conceptualizing Plansform. While we sincerely believe that Indian architecture is rich with talent, unfortunately there is hardly any access to their vast body of work. Today, it is very easy to read about and get inspired by architects from the West, only because they have documented and showcased their work diligently. Plansform aims to set this right for the Indian architecture community by providing a unified platform to enable architects and other design professionals to easily showcase their profiles, portfolio and projects that can inspire architects in the generations to come.
There is an urgent need to build a strong online ecosystem for the Indian architecture and design community, that can foster better connections and collaborations, enhance visibility and access to the work of architects and provide easy access to products and services to the architecture professionals. This, we believe, will also give a fillip to the product manufacturers and suppliers to reach out to a well-defined target market, thus enabling them grow their business.
We are building Plansform with thoughtful care and attention to enable the architecture professionals to find & be found, connect & collaborate, showcase & transact.
