Addressing a prize distribution ceremony for winners of the competition of making imaginary themes to beautify newly constructed projects, the CDA chief said the freshness and brilliancy of the ideas can be maintained by involving new generation in such healthy activities as they would feel proud to be part of the national development.

“The Capital Development Authority has taken some practical steps in this direction. CDA has worked on plans to beautify some of its newly constructed projects by inviting the young future architects for a competition to contribute their imaginary themes,” CDA chairman said. He viewed that practice will not only provide a face lifting of the projects, but also serve as a permanent feature of these landmarks.
