The Surat Diamond Bourse, now the world’s largest office building, is like a city within a city.
Documenting this project was such a fun and enriching experience. This film transcends the building's visual impact, capturing the spirit of collaboration and community effort - a testament to the rise of a new India that is making its mark in the world.

Spanning 660,000 square metres, the complex just outside of Surat includes various offices arranged around a central spine.
The workplace for diamond traders has surpassed the size of America's Pentagon office.

The Surat Diamond Bourse, has also bagged the prestigious ‘Best Office Building’ award at World Architecture Festival 2023.
