RECENT EVENTS

VISTAS - Project Analysis is a workshop / presentation where we bring together design students with Project Architects of important buildings and initiate interaction. The sole objective of this endeavour is to make students experience the "process of design" in a highly professional environment.

The first project we had taken up for presentation is a global bank with its major office in Chennai. The Lead Project Designers, Ar.Livingston and Ar.Sathya Madhavan from Space Matrix Design Consultants, Singapore made the presentation and shared their thoughts and concerns with us.

Art & Design are different forms of creative expressions that have been used since time immemorial for communicating with the world around. While Art is more or less in the realm of the "intangible", Design is more often than not focused on satisfying particular interests and have specific stakeholders. As designers, we are aware that Art seeded by "thought" has to be "designed" however subconscious it is. The question we now flip to the students is...

Can Design be "Arted"? Naive as it might sound, but in introspection, how can Art enrich Design? It can in 2 ways as we see below, one in an intangible way and the other in an end-product centric way.

We are just coming off from a full-day event organized for students of Architecture & Design. The prime objective of the awareness program organized by VISTAS was to give a glimpse of the world of Architecture as it is professionally practiced. We have to disclose that there are very many of them disoriented or just go through the motions, their interests for pursuing Architecture lie somewhere and they are dragged out of focus elsewhere.

The common refrain of a student who aspires to be an Architect is, where do they stand after 5 years of taxing education. They are quite unaware of the various avenues that are open to them that require expertise. So VISTAS is conducting a series of events over several months to bring together students and professionals in a common platform where valuable insights into the broader industry and practice can be gleaned.
