Conference Description

One of the oldest design forums in India, the 361° Conference is an initiative by Indian Architect & Builder (IA&B) to inspire a thought-exchange programme on relevant ideas in architecture and critical concerns of the discipline and thus, create a relevant and serious platform for dialogue on architecture in India. 

The seventh edition of the 361° Conference is scheduled for the 19th-21st February 2014 at the Nehru Centre, Mumbai. This edition will deliberate on the theme ‘Architecture and Identity’. In the context of architecture, as we move further in the 21st century, we find incredibly diverse and individual trajectories of academia, practice and building. Within this diversity, we find a consistent struggle by individuals and groups to anchor ideas to their appropriate roots. Introspective and reflective in its essence, this search for the origins or the fundamentals is critical in contemporary architecture as the search is what determines the trajectory. This Conference will focus on the people and practices that have an investment in the idea of identity; whose work takes a critical position on this issue.
