Introduction

Projects from 5th year Students of Architecture are invited for the Forum this year. Prior to the forum, an expert panel will be invited to select around fifteen projects that are most appropriate for the discussion. Previously, the projects were divided into pre-decided thematic groups and discussions happened within these groups. A new system of thematic categorization will be implemented this time, which involves and generates a dialogue between all the participants and panelists before the formation of the groups. Hierarchies of a classical jury format will dissolve in the process and groups within the students and panelists will emerge through this dialogue. Finally, three groups will form based on themes generated in the discussion, which will include five projects and four panelists each. At the end of each session, the groups will present a write-up highlighting the underlying approaches to architecture based on the derived themes with the help of the presented projects.
