Nevertheless, the Architectural Digest is a huge brand and its association with Indian market will boost the entire industry here. We should definitely look forward to many more international partnerships because their idea of architecture is unique and modernised. Their technology is for technical buildings like airport and industries. But blindly being influenced for residential projects is not a good idea because every residential project depends upon specific requirements. Hence those designs may not match Indian needs.
