The innovative, dynamic design of This award has been instituted for an AV Architect chosen by AV-ICN platform to be recognized for the quality of his body of work, incorporating the best innovation and vision in AV architecture. In this feature, we highlight one of the most prestigious projects accomplished by Narendra Naidu - The Statue of Unity. Digital Multimedia Technology at Statue of Unity accomplished by Mr. Narendra Naidu and his team at Rhino Engineers spreads across almost 25 KM (project details on next page) encompassing hospitality, tourist and entertainment projects in the vicinity of the Statue of Unity site, including amongst others, the Jungle Safari, a state-of-art zoological park with unique collection of indigenous and exotic animals and birds from the various biogeographic regions of the world; the Children's Nutrition Park, a unique theme park providing entertainment and vital knowledge to the children on healthy eating habits and nutritional values; Vishwa Van, a global forest which is home to herbs, shrubs and trees native to all 7 continents, The Valley of Flowers (also known as Bharat Van), spread across 24 acres of land is a haven for colorful flowering plants along the bank of river Narmada and Ekta Mall, which houses handlooms, handicrafts and traditional textile showrooms from various states of India to promote Indian Handicrafts; The Cactus Garden, a unique botanical garden exhibiting a huge variety of Cacti and succulents.

The brief from the client, M/s. Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNNL), was that the digital media technology had to be unique, innovative, and attractive, not seen before. Commenting on the concept of the project, Mr. Naidu says, "The vision of the government with regards to Statue of Unity at Kevadia was grand, and inspiring. Honestly, initially I felt some trepidation trying to create something that matched the vision of the project, but after sharing my initial designs, I was relieved that the client understood and backed my ideas and concepts. Of course, the identity of our project is so different, and I think our installation takes into account local culture and transitions. We matched the requirements of the brief given to us and what we have created delivers a wow-factor & something innovative while staying true to the original push of the government."

No project comes without its share of challenges. "There were a number of challenges for this project. When work started it was already monsoon season. All our lighting required the installation of electrical equipment, and you can imagine that all these tasks are complicated when it rains. Because of the bad weather we were also concerned if we would be able to deliver the project on schedule, however we successfully competed it within just six months. Lastly, this was a project with a number of stakeholders such as the agency, government department and local municipality. We had to make sure all of them were brought on for strategic decisions which required a fair bit of coordination," explains Mr. Naidu.
