The Death of Architecture is a travelling exhibition that aims to engage audiences across the country and bring into the spotlight concerns and issues that need closer examination, discussion and better resolution. The Baroda showing was from 17th March to the 1st of April.
Architecture is perhaps the most visible and permanent embodiment of the aspirations, hopes and cultures of societies. From symbols of the past to more recent institutions the country has acquired post Independence, cities are often identified by the architecture that dominates their consciousness.
13 firms across the country reflect about this change and question the direction in which we build, and what becomes of our cities. In a clear departure from the past, they dispense largely with technical jargon, and architectural drawings and instead adopt the language of poster designers and artists, to communicate their thoughts.
