The global economy is currently going through a fine phase after the onslaught of the Covid pandemic. Since infrastructure development is the cornerstone of social and economic growth, countries around the world are increasingly concentrating on upgrading their existing infrastructure. India too has not fallen short in this regard. Keeping in mind the pace at which India is currently growing, the government has made massive plans for infrastructure development and plans to spend $1.4 trillion on infrastructure through ‘National Infrastructure Pipeline’ in the next five years. As a result, the urban planning & design industry in India is witnessing a sharp upward curve, and there is huge demand for services in this space.

Hamir Smart Architects is one such practice that is contributing the country’s future by offering exceptional quality urban planning and design services. Headquartered in Mumbai, the practice was founded in 2007 by Hamir Smart, who belongs to a family having architectural background. Hamir has completed his Master of Advanced Studies in Architecture from University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. Hamir has profound experience in the industry working with companies abroad.

Today, we are at a very interesting point in urban development. We as a country are growing, and there is still huge potential for an architect and urban planner to be part of the growth. Today, there are new opportunities in tier-II and tier-III cities. So, as an architect and urban planner, we see massive opportunities in the form of new
projects for design and planning”, says Hamir.

Additionally, it has also been involved in a Passenger Water Transportation project for Mumbai and even done in-depth research titled ‘Interchange: An Aspect of Elevated Rail Terminal, IFBC, Mumbai’. However, what has helped the practice garner such widespread recognition is its architectural design solutions, professional approach, cost efficiency and integrity.
