Abhishek believes, for design excellence a continuous dialogue between academic research and professional practices is essential and these dialogues must percolate freely beyond the narrow domains of design, into the realms of engineering technology to economics, from psychology to philosophy, from management and leadership to spirituality, and everywhere else.
He envisions architects' role far beyond merely designer of spaces but as designers of lives of all living souls connected with the supreme consciousness.
