This Audiogyan is in association with The Drawing Board.
The Drawing Board is an international architecture platform based in India where students can test their understanding and skills in shaping the way communities live and thrive while preserving local heritage. TDB has been actively running an Architecture competition for undergraduate students since 2016. It was conceptualized by Mindspace Architects and Rohan Builders.
This year, they are back in action with a live event. Architecture undergrad students can submit their project ideas on the theme of designing a “Memorial for Charles Correa”. The last date to submit your concepts is 1st October 2022. More details in show notes and thedrawingboard.in
We have one of the Jury members with us on Audiogyan – Architect, Sachin Agashikar. Sachin studied Architecture from J.J. and was awarded Gold Medal in 1991 for his final year design thesis. Before setting up his own practice in 1999, he worked with Ar. Charles Correa for eight years and worked as an associate at Cancer Research Centre in Lisbon, R&D Centre for Mahindra & Mahindra, and Extension to Kala Academy and IUCAA
Today we’ll try to document some of his thoughts on the “art of seeing”, and how to zoom out and zoom in to envision the macro context and details together. Can possibly help students to present ideas for designing the Charles Correa Memorial at “The Drawing Board” competition.
