Ar B V Murthy started the lecture on highlighting the role of architects, which is not only bringing beauty to the spaces but also giving meaning to the built form. He continued the lecture by taking us through a series of his significant projects that were built, on-going and also on few entries for design competition. Through his projects, he explained the students on various processes from conceptualisation to realization.
The lecture series was hosted by CAAD students with great zeal. Prof Vinodh Vijayakumar, Director, CAAD, introduced Mr. Vikram to the audience.
