Bangalore International Airport roped in NID students through a design competition to transform passengers’ experience as they travel from the airport terminal to the plane. Know who grabbed the big prize at the competition.
NID students’ skills were recently put to the test through a design competition organised by the Bangalore International Airport Ltd that challenged them to re-imagine the passengers’ experience at the terminal. Participants were asked to transform the travelator or the bus that takes passengers from the airport terminal to the plane.
The competition was open to all students of NID across the country, and also to this year’s graduates. Seven shortlisted designs were presented on April 20 at NID-Gandhinagar to a jury. The shortlist included designs sent in by students of the Transport and Automobile Design (TAD) and Strategic Design Management (SDM) courses at NID.
The entry that most impressed the jury was of the winning team of Sourabh Yadhav and Neeraj Jawale (TAD). The duo developed a unique style of travelator which, in their words, is “neither a bus nor an escalator”.
The 1st runner-up was Vishnu P Ramesh and the 2nd runner-up was a team comprising Syamlal (TAD), Vijay Harikumar (SDM) and Anuraag Paul, and all the students are coming from the NID-Gandhinagar campus. Cash prizes and trophies were presented to the winners by the Chief Operating Officer of the airport, Mr. Javed Malik. A pilot design will be implemented in the near future, but it is not confirmed as to which design idea will eventually be adopted by the airport authorities.
