Selected for Sponsored Thesis Competition NIUA, NMCG
In an ever-growing world where technology and socio-economic trends are unfolding at a considerably increasing rate, it is inadmissible for anything to remain stagnant. In the grand scheme of time and space, human civilization as a whole is at a mere split of the fingers.
With roots in the Sangam city, Prayagraj, Vishrut Goswami(B180263AR), Final year B.Arch Student had always admired his city since it has a vibrant history and a glorious past. Having had a chance to be woven into the thread of storytellers, from the Kumbh Mela, one of the largest peaceful, religious gatherings in the world, with an estimated 120 million people visiting over the two months is as astonishing as is to see its ever-growing pack. The sheer size of the gathering raises many logistical challenges as well as for the governments that regulate and plan the Kumbh Mela. Historically, the Kumbh Mela has had issues with the control and safety of the masses of pilgrims. Part of the solution for controlling the masses of people is the careful planning of infrastructure and built complexes. The Kumbh Mela has continued to grow drastically over time and has grown into the complex mega-city that gets constructed for each pilgrimage.
In-order to solve this issue Vishrut Goswami along with his mentor Ar. Ritesh Rajana are planning for a solution which is also Vishrut’s final year thesis which is an investigation of various possibilities in impermanent architecture and urban spaces. It will aim to question and challenge the accepted assumptions of architecture in terms of time and permanence in the context of urban landscapes. Architecture cannot keep up with changes in technological, social, and ecological needs. This thesis will not only inspect how much potential ephemeral architecture has to become a state-of-the-art model in developing cities but also will formulate and understand current models to scrutinize their capability to give contemporary remedies to changing urban dynamics and urban processes alongside conventional architectural approaches.
Vishrut has recently be selected as a finalist for a sponsored thesis competition by National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) & National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) amongst the Under Graduate Category. The National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) and Namami Gange have been building a network of young professionals to provide innovative solutions for urban river management through its annual Student Thesis Competition on ‘Reimagining Urban Rivers’. This will play a prominent role in realizing PM Modi’s vision of India’s G20 presidency to be “inclusive, ambitious, decisive and action-oriented”.
NITC is Proud of our Students Achievements in interNIT sports competitions
