excellence in architecture. a NIASA initiative

I went to Vizag on 28 August to be part of the jury on zone 4 selection of two best theses of architecture. Beside me, there were architect. SK Das and architect Ashok Dhawan from New Delhi as members of jury. It was also nice to meet old friends like Prasanna Desai from PuneThere were 15 entries and we selected 10 for presentations on 29th. It was a very good experience. I am really happy at the quality and boldness of thinking and corresponding quality of architectural design and presentation I found in some of them. Equally distressed at the fuzzy foggy thinking and escapist presentation with equal amount of confusion. Will write more later.
