Call me Architecture. I am a product of a way of thinking. Over the years, I have presented myself as a dream of civilizations. I have found myself layered endlessly, while my contemporaries have evolved into rather noteworthy images of their primitive selves. Although I am interpreted differently in many a space and time, I may mean the same. I see myself as an instrument to elucidate problems. My nature of debates may have changed and my discipline altered, but I have existed with one and only one purpose: to serve. I remember and I do reflect.


Although my learners have significantly cultivated newer spaces over the period of time where I have been transformed, twisted and determined to newer arrangements: it has been hard to perceive them not exploring a comfortable one for themselves. In fact, to be a student of architecture demands to be something other than the student at all the times. Hence, in the event of facilitating such an idea, I bring you an opportunity to paint me in the idea you want.


The open ideas competition invites participation from architects, designers and students to come up with an imaginary story of farming architectural learning into vertical derivative of a building.

The participants are encouraged to deal with a unique and distinctive approach to the acknowledged domain of identity. We would indeed love to see architectural school as a comedy of individual errors which when unified produce a meaningful setting for ideas. Kindly avoid clichés as different traits of architecture schools and work towards more constructive programs. We ask you to go as much Up as possible to avoid the down.
