"Feed fuel to your imagination ,provide food to your brain ,supply wings to your thoughts and give an Aakriti to your ideas."

In Sanskrit, ‘Aakriti’ means ‘Shape’. Shape represents more than a physical dimension. It tries to depict the idea behind the structure/form, and also the thought process behind the idea. How the idea ‘occurs’ or ‘happens’ to the individuals. We at Aakriti, wish to serve as a competitive platform for showcasing the designs of the participants, when subject to a series of constraints/expectations, to put their artistic and logical capacities to the test. Aakriti also serves as a learning platform for participants to receive valuable feedback from judges for their designs.

Aakriti, from its inception in Pragyan '06 is an Architectural Design competition solely for those who have a creative imagination and are looking for a platform to express their artistic skills and their vast knowledge of technology.

This Design Competition involves the provision of a Design

Problem Sheet to the participants on which they work trying to combine the wide variety

of factors that they need to consider, study, solve, calculate, design and present to make

their product

·         Technically sound,

·         Aesthetically pleasing,

·         Practically feasible

·         Functionally secure, and

·         Culturally acceptable.

It tests your expertise in a large variety of software such as AutoCAD, Revit, Rhinoceros,

Photoshop and other related architectural softwares. It also tests your presentation skills.

Aakriti is an interdisciplinary event wherein the competitors have to put themselves

through a lot of study and research. It is not simply a design competition which tests your

creativity, but it also demands your technological/ engineering expertise and knowledge,

your understanding of the project’s feasibility and the provision of practical solutions for

the same.
