Faculty of Architecture, Planning and Design
Faculty of Architecture, Planning and Design, REVA University, has been setting impeccable standards with its ingenious tutelage and dynamic curriculum ever since its inception in the year 2015. Our team takes immense pride in the sense of leadership, community, and empathy that we instil every day among our students, which is the very premise of our establishment. With a world-class infrastructure of spacious studios, workshops, labs, exhibition spaces, construction yard, plugged-in classrooms, auditoriums, and outdoor learning spaces, the School of Architecture is stalwartly supported by DivyaSree Developers who have decades of rich experience in Architecture, Construction, and Infrastructure Development. A rich network of industry experts including award-winning architects and designers guide and mentor our budding architects in the studio and research projects. Combined with excellent faculty with diverse specializations, this ensures that our graduates can deliver design solutions sensitive to society and context.

The world is experiencing numerous challenges in the form of climate change, environmental degradation, pandemics, and many unexpected transformative forces, which demand re-shaping and reimagining of spaces and structures. There is a demand for cities to become more responsive. Architecture and urban Planning have become eloquent in global and local set-ups with numerous technological developments ranging from culture and heritage of urban settings to changes in urban fabric and urban education.
If coding is the word that describes the present epoch of digitalization, decoding represents a pause, a pause to reflect and understand the direction we are heading, not only as individuals assisted by extra (artificial) intelligence but also as a civilization that is coming to terms with the processes of planet earth and beyond.
The presence of various structures realised through varying architectural styles indicates parallel presence of forms, functions, finances, and fears - representing the present age dynamics and directions. This contemporaneity is the essence of multiplicity in architecture, embedded through development goals, cultural practices, environment and heritage concerns, artistic and algorithmic notions, and adaptive and pedagogy principles.
This conference is an effort to create a platform that enables the discussion of the various facets of architecture and planning that are in the processes of coding and decoding. We intend to generate a rich debate and dialogue between the participants and produce a lively atmosphere of ideas, interpretations, and introspections to be carried back.
We invite you to be part of this and deliver a Keynote address to the gathered audience of students and research scholars.
