Karan Grover

In 2004, He became the first architect in the world to win the USGBC “Platinum” Award for the greenest building in the world. Moreover, He was recently made the Permanent Honorary Fellow of the National Academy of Environment at the hands of former President Dr. Abdul Kalam in Delhi.

Those were old times – khaki colored cardboard or “puttha” as it is colloquially called – was transformed into what we thought were buildings. From my first cardboard model, Which was a barrack-like building with a floor plate of 6" x 3" and a sloping roof (I stuck a chimney on it as an afterthought), I graduated to a segmental building an exact copy of the LIC building at Nariman Point. I replaced the LIC logo with the name Tiara – a neighbor in Bombay, Who I was madly in love with. I was fifteen. This model, Proudly displayed in the Mayo Museum, Was anonymous for thirty years in the category “Students Work” – now it proudly bears my name. It was the name ‘Tiara’ that convinced the Authorities all those many years later of my claim as the architect of the model!
