Art, Architects and Lights

Yesterday I had a meeting with the Indian Institute of Architects Ms Gita Balakishnan, President of Bengal Chapter, Abin Chowdhury, Ayan Choudhury and others). We decided to have a design session for 2 days at Rabindra Tirtha with students of Art, Architecture and Engineering with a view to create smart outdoor creations. I suggested few themes that the students could work on (1) design  graphics, lights embellishments on metro pillars in New Town (2) canal-side walk (3) creative models for street hawker stalls (4) interactive intelligent street furniture / footpath (5) sensory park for the challenged (6) any other site in New Town.

The schedule will be decided taking into consideration exam schedules. The 2-day non-stop session would be done by IIA in collaboration with Hidco/ NKDA.
