The profession of Architecture is passing through difficult times. There are many compelling issues which are required to be debated. Foreign architects have penetrated in India and working on big projects whereas Indian Architects are not allowed to work in their respective countries. Against Architects Acts 1972, government departments are calling tenders/quotations from duly-qualified architects. Unqualified persons are practicing architecture against law. A number of Schools of Architecture are opened in the country. These schools neither have good quality of students nor faculty. It is leading to very poor quality of education. Such important issues are going to be discussed in the conference. The conference is divided into the following sub-themes:-

  • Entry of Foreign Architects
