Dayananda Sagar College of Architecture Announces Winners of the Essays in Architecture Competition
Architectural thinking has a rich tradition of being bound to writing. Be it the vāstu śāstra, the Seven Lamps by Ruskin, or the writings of Thoreau—writing and craft have not only gone hand in hand but are synonymous. Imagination is the moment of architecture and it finds expression in writing as much, if not more, as it does in drawing. Unfortunately, the power of the pen, especially when it comes to architecture-design, remains largely underrated.
Taking the initiative to recognize this power of the pen, Dayananda Sagar College of Architecture (DSCA), Bengaluru, a renowned architectural institution of India, is delighted to declare the names of the coveted prize winners of the institute’s national-level essay-writing competition, ESSAYS IN ARCHITECTURE: Analysing, Imagining, and Reinventing.
