Society Interiors - - TALKING SHOP -

Aditya Col­lege of Ar­chi­tec­ture, Mum­bai hosted its 3rd edi­tion of it lec­ture se­ries - The An­nual Charles Cor­rea Memo­rial lec­ture, on 16 June 2017 in col­lege’s au­di­to­rium. The lec­ture was in the mem­ory of the late Ar. Charles Cor­rea, whose sig­nif­i­cant cre­ation of con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture post-in­de­pen­dence have made the era pre-em­i­nent. There­fore, the lec­tures aimed at cre­at­ing aware­ness amongst the stu­dents about the philoso­phies and works of Charles Cor­rea and the far-reach­ing in­flu­ence it has left for the fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of ar­chi­tects.

The renowned ar­chi­tect, Ar. Ab­hi­nav Wakhle, was a guest speaker for the event. He gave his guid­ance and di­rected the young ar­chi­tects, par­tak­ing his knowl­edge and experiences. The sem­i­nar was com­menced by the light­ing of the lamp and Prin­ci­pal, Ar. Aparna Surve fe­lic­i­tated the speaker along with his wife Ar. Kanika Wakhle. The sem­i­nar was hosted and con­ducted by the stu­dents of Aditya Col­lege of Ar­chi­tec­ture. The event saw par­tic­i­pa­tion of 300 stu­dents and fac­ulty mem­bers.

Ar. Ab­hi­nav Wakhle who was as­so­ci­ated with late Ar. Charles Cor­rea for six years as se­nior project ar­chi­tect and later be­tween 2012 and 2015 for the archival works, un­earthed the greater in­ten­sity of Cor­rea’s thoughts. The in­sight­ful pre­sen­ta­tions on the works of Cor­rea and his re­sponse to the com­mu­nity was the main point of the sem­i­nar. He also shared a video lm made by Charles on the com­mu­nity and its strength for ur­ban de­vel­op­ment, in 1960’s dur­ing Cor­rea’s Bos­ton stay, was a very unique ap­proach to stream­line com­mu­nity prob­lems. Charles Cor­rea’s ma­jor con­cern that re­flected through the pre­sen­ta­tion was be­ing sen­si­tive to the sur­round­ings from the city level.

In the first edi­tion of the memo­rial lec­ture in 2015, Ar. Naren­dra Den­gle shared his in­sights and learn­ings, as be­ing closely as­so­ci­ated with the Master. In the sec­ond edi­tion last year, Ar. Sachin Agshikar con­tin­ued the ses­sion with his experiences as as­so­ciate to the Master on var­i­ous pro­jects.
