Visual Diary – 2004
KRVIA Director Appointment
Aneerudha Paul was appointed as the new Director of KRVIA in 2004.
He has attempted to evolve a theory that conceives architecture as a cultural practice. It is a part of a larger manifestation of similar or allied practices that require simultaneous historical exploration to reveal the impulses for their creation. Thus, the teaching technique is informed by a multidisciplinary approach that allows for the creation of new knowledge for the architectural discipline.
