It is no easy task to shortlist tens of thousands of Architecture Firms into Top 350, and we have certainly tried our best to live up to the task. This was also an opportunity to separate the wheat from the chaff and express appreciation for the firms shaping Indian Architecture in the 21st century. The following criteria guided the shortlisting of firms:

  • Typology of Projects the firm is active in
  • Location of the firm
  • Years of practice
  • Range of scope of services
  • Number of employees / Size of firm

However, please note that: In order to keep the list relevant to young Architects, only contemporary active firms have been included in the list. That means, we had to exclude many Architects who have guided the evolution of Indian Architecture; Architects like Charles Correa, Laurie Baker, and Nari Gandhi, as their firms are no longer active. However, their works continue to inspire us and you will find many young firms listed below that are following their footsteps.
