Dayananda Sagar College of Architecture (DSCA)
ESSAYS IN ARCHITECTURE: Analysing, Imagining, and Reinventing is being organised by Dayananda Sagar College of Architecture (DSCA), Bengaluru, for architectural students to display their ability to articulate ideas in the written format. The institution, through this maiden venture, hopes to establish this event as a standard for exemplary literary output.

Says Prof. (Dr.) Rama R. Subrahmanian, Principal, DSCA, “The ability to communicate and write logically and with clarity is essential if architects are to assume leadership, and prevail in social, political and economic contexts where key decisions about the built environment are made.” Adds, author and architectural journalist Ar. Apurva Bose Dutta, curator for the competition, “This initiative is designed to bring forth talent of architectural writers in the country and motivate them to pursue architectural-design writing as a career.”

The competition on the theme of ‘Architecture and Technology’ is open to students pursuing a bachelor’s/master’s degree in accredited schools of architecture in India. Entries are invited in two formats: Long Essay (2500 words) and Short Essay (1000 words). Four cash prizes of ₹25,000/- each and two special mentions will be declared. The Jury Panel will consist of experts from the architecture-writing-technology field.
