Indian architect Shimul Jhaveri Kadri of SJK Architects, Mumbai, won a Special Mention in arcVision 2014, an annual award for women architects. The main arcVision prize was bagged by Portuguese architect Ines Lobo. Kadri and Lobo were chosen from a shortlist of 21 architects representing 15 countries.

Instituted last year by Italian cement company Italcementi, the arcVision award honours the best women in architecture, a profession that worldwide has been less than inviting to women practitioners.
