When it comes to discovering latent talent in the world of design and architecture, the biennial Archiprix International awards beats them all!
Sensitivity is the key premise that comes forth as we view the plethora of projects vying for the Archiprix International Award 2016 – the competition that selects the World’s best graduation projects. With over 380 entries world over, the competition is tough to say the least!
It is enlightening to review the kind of topics handpicked in the 31 entries from Indian students. From an art centre, music academy and spiritual lab… conventional functionality takes on a new garb with young minds ticking on rehabilitation of mental patients, deaf and blind to an orientation centre for sainthood; memorial centre, even strengthening a human-nature connection.
Following are a few projects that we have thoroughly enjoyed. Do review and revert in the comments below with your feedback.
