About the Talk

Architectural Practices are going through a big rethink as the developmental issues are increasingly becoming challenging ; Interdisciplinary approaches, Networking & Collaborations are  inevitable and the very nature of an architecture practice is going through transformational times; the role of an architect is being redefined by the value system, social engagement & caring for the environment at this crucial juncture. This conversation aims to share experiences, thoughts and enquiries at Dustudio, which sees these challenges, as an opportunity to redefine the profession, by the process of unlearning, as well as relook at our own timeless traditions; the need for the profession is to create a more humble, equitable and accessible environment for younger practices, as well as creating networks & a space for artisans, architects & designers, alike.
