Design platform India Design Forum (IDF) is organising a virtual conference, to discuss what defines architecture going forward, with its series titled IDF Debates: Building Blocks, spread over the coming four weeks. Architecture has been an active point of discussion in all India Design Forum conferences. However, this year, the conference has taken the form of virtual debates.
The series features topics that range from what is ‘good’ architecture and the business of it to responsible building, and the difference between professional training and education. Speakers include Brinda Somaya, Soumitro Ghosh, Sanjay Puri, Vicky Richardson, Asim Waqif, and Niels Schoenfelder among others. “One of the other aspects we address is the lack of critique of architecture in India. To build a mature community in any fraternity, there is a need for open critiquing,” says Rajshree.
Anyone can tune into the conversations, which will be streamed on YouTube on November 28, December 5, 12 and 19, at 6 pm. Register at www.indiadesignforum.com/event-registration/
