About The Event

Join us for the opening on Sunday, 02 July 2023 at 11.30 am.

This exhibition invites you to explore the changing relationship between women practitioners in architecture, design, planning, its allied disciplines, and the atelier. The ever- lasting image of the Atelier in post-independent India has been very urban, male-centric, and mostly a clean, white, well-defined space for architectural production suggestive of no room for errors or flexibility in its ways.

This perception of an atelier begins at the architectural school and manifests into a design studio almost a decade later. On the contrary, the oral histories of the woman practitioners from the project ‘Women of Vaastukala’ reveal that their practices and workspaces have been continuously shape-shifting. The stories weave in and out of personal experiences and political situations to explain the dynamic nature of their practices or the choice they had to make.

We look forward to your presence!
