Visual Diary – 2021

Directors Vision

The KRVIA imagines its pedagogic structure as a trans-disciplinary narrative that can re-configure the existing edifice where the critical regional question becomes a force to reckon with, and would encompass the conceptual framework drawn with diverse forces.

Since September 2021 KRVIA Design and Research Cell has been involved in larger research titled Representing Grids. As a part of this initiative, we have been looking at the National Park of Mumbai through the lens of infrastructure and seeing how people, communities, and organisations including the local, state and national level civic bodies are creating access to them. The project is supported by the Edinburgh University.

First online exhibition of the works of students of the academic year 2020 – 2021 was exhibited on the Kunsmatrix online platform.

With the intention of developing easy accessible learning material for students across the globe KRVIA-MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) is imagined as a platform where KRVIA faculty members and external experts can conduct online courses on wide ranging topics related to architecture and urbanism.

The KRVIA Monthly has been initiated to disseminate upcoming events, including encounters, special lectures, important events, research updates, faculties research & academic engagements and newly inducted books in the library.

2022 Urban Culture | Architecture | Question of identity

The theme attempts to articulate the city, urban phenomena and architecture through the lens of culture. It is an interdisciplinary understanding of culture, which is in a state of flux, shaped by the city, its identity and its architecture.
