All papers can be an investigation of the built and unbuilt environment and its connecting threads between the Past, the Present, and the Future in terms of transforming meanings in identity. 

The scope of the investigation (Broad or Specific) and the approaches of study, for all themes, are open-ended and up to the authors. All interested academicians, researchers, practitioners, and students are invited to submit papers in the following themes.

The themes have been broadly grouped as follows.

Sub-themes:

Heritage as an Anchor

Built and unbuilt heritage shapes cities and influences its identity. How can permanent or ephemeral urbanity evolve around heritage as an anchor? How can the intangible values of the built historic fabric transition to the present context and further project to the future?

Resilience in the Era of Change

With the advent of technological advancements, cities are evolving ‘Smart’ solutions in the built environment that attempt to facilitate the fast pace of urban life. But are these solutions holistic and do they address core issues? Are they inclusive of diverse identities? Several rural and peri-urban areas are also struggling with changing identities in the process of urbanization. How can the urban fabric become resilient in the era of change?

Space as an Expression of a Democracy

The Built and Unbuilt environment acts as a representational space that provides non-verbal cues that shape democratic narratives in a Nation. Any Democracy must convey values of inclusion and freedom of expression through its built environment. In the volatile political environment of today, often hegemonic narratives take over, diminishing the values of a democracy. How can the Space act as an equalizer and empower people? How can it manifest as an expression of a Democracy?

Identity and Sustainability

With a capital-driven production of space, images that promote a certain lifestyle take over. In the conception of this ocular-centric built environment, we often negate the abuse that we are putting our environment through. ‘Sustainability’ and its connotations often become mere tools that feed into this materialistic market of branding and advertising. How can we change these superficial meanings of sustainability to truly work towards providing for deeper and more holistic solutions that sensitively sustain the identity and values of any built environment?

Architecture and the local community

The cities that we see today were born out of an amalgamation of diverse local communities that came with their unique identities. These communities integrated seamlessly with the city and contributed in their own ways to its growth. Today we see that with changing contexts, evolving aspirations of newer generations, these local communities are at the verge of losing their identity. How can the design of settlements of these communities facilitate a transition that retains their uniqueness yet respects evolving identities?

Eligibility

Academicians, Professionals and Students from backgrounds of Architecture, Urban design, Planning, Conservation, Anthropology, History and connected disciplines.

All papers will be published in the conference proceeding book with an ISBN-978-93-5473-568-4. Few of the submitted papers will be picked for paper presentation during the conference under the said themes.

Few handpicked papers submitted in the conference will be further published in Highly Indexed Journals (Scopus/ Web of sciences/ UGC care). It will prove to be a vital reference for architects, urban designers, architectural and urban practitioners, decision-makers, and governing bodies involved in urban development strategies.

E-Certificates will be awarded to all the Authors & Delegates.
