361° CONFERENCE 2013 - Architecture of Purpose

As communities continually negotiate their destiny in an increasingly global world, design becomes a reflection of the cultures architects create. In the haze of ‘isms’, the mania of the virtual and a landscape of failed utopias, the conference aimed to provoke and rethink the reason why architecture is relevant and what is relevant architecture? Icon lecturers such as Peter Rich and Charles Correa set the premise of discussion. An exhibition representing ‘Interpretations of Sustainability in the Indian Context’ was held concurrently.
