Get Real Now! by Neelkanth Chhaya
Special Lecture - 29th May 2021
"The talk will consider the sharp warning, challenge and reminder that the pandemic has given to all professions, including architecture, urban design and planning. If this is a challenge that overturns all our usual modes of thinking and acting, will it demand a radical reconsideration of the meaning of architecture and design? What forms might such a reformulation take? And how would such a reframing affect education and the profession?"

Podcast Dialogues
BROADCAST : Interrupted Ep #2 Rohan Shivkumar
BROADCAST : interrupted is a podcast that brings you long-form conversations with professionals around the world that associate their work with architecture and its effects on culture and society.
On EP#2 the BROADCAST : interrupted spoke to Rohan Shivkumar about his many interests and concerns with respect to architecture, academic projects and documentary film–making. The conversation goes on to touch varied bases concerning the state of discourse in India and specifically, Mumbai. Rohan speaks poignantly regarding his own experiences as a cultural actor as well as his role within the profession as an academic.
On shared values in architecture…
“…..I think those can be encapsulated in the very clarified ideas from the French revolution that is Liberty, Equality and Justice, and Fraternity. If one is able to calibrate what good architecture is based on those terms – is it just, environmentally, socially just. All those resources perhaps are being spent on something. Or equal or free…
…But for me what’s most interesting is the word fraternity in that entire group. Fraternity is family, love, brotherhood. So it seems like it places love as the most instinctive and maybe even irrational imagination as a part of those four things. And I think that is nice when you think about it. Is your architecture a gift to someone you love? Or is it something that you’re sharing?.....”
The podcast is hosted by architects
Chiraag Punjabi and Aniruddha Mukherjee who are based out of Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Chiraag Punjabi is a KRVIA Alumni (2009-2014) and studied Master of Arts in Architecture at the Staedelschule Architecture Class in Frankfurt Am Main, Germany.
