Art and Architecture have always been intrinsically tied together. Cross disciplinary explorations and collaborations between both have yielded path breaking results as is evident in the projects of Zaha Hadid, Peter Eisenmann, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind and many more.

This workshop has been especially designed for Designers, Architects, Artists, students and young professionals to enable them enhance their thought process to be able to conceive works of great originality and creativity.

Participants will take up works of Art of their choice as a point of departure to arrive at a conceptual thought process of space making articulated in third and fourth dimensions using the digital medium.

During the process of evolution from Art to Architecture, the work of Art chosen as inspiration will remain as a trace in the background to reveal a highly original work with a fresh expression and immense potential.
