The Zonal NASA Convention is an annual event held every year in each zone. The National Association of Students of Architecture (NASA) consists of 6 zones among which the largest zone- Zone 6 consists of colleges from Tamil Nadu and Kerala. This year marks the 62nd Zonal NASA Convention of Zone 6 and we are happy to announce that it is conducted at the Marian College Of Architecture and Planning from 25th October to 28th October.
Marian College of Architecture and Planning began
in the year 2014, under the Latin Arch Diocese, Trivandrum and
has since made it their mission to empower students to
intervene critically into the social and environmental issues with
deep understanding of the Principles of Design and inspiring
them with a spirit of innovation and creative experimentation in
shaping the built environment.
This year's ZNC, titled MOLEDRO 19 runs closely along the
theme of celebrating the culture and heritage we have and to
retell these tales in our own perspectives.
MARIAN COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE & PLANNING
Over the generations, people have left behind a wide variety of art, architecture and culture, which over time has been branded heritage and left behind in the past. These heritages, often have fragments of an era's knowledge, hurdles and ideologies. In our eagerness to travel through "road not taken" we learn about these heritages and not from them. If we take the step to learn from the past we created, we will come across the fragments our masters' creations speak which more often than not creates a connection between the observer and creator irrespective of the time and distance between. These connections if reinterpreted by an individual or a group can become the stepping stone co better solutions and conceptions for the future.
Thus, MOLEDRO is an initiative, towards a better generation of artists, authors, architects and professionals who do not merely regenerate what the masters have created but to learn, adapt, reinterpret from them and of course, to create and make "happy accidents" ( - Bob Ross), that will bring them closer to an India that can boast of better creations, in all respects.
