    Exhibition, discussions held as part of Portfolio18

    Deft handwork, good imagination and perfect pictorial finish were the highlights of Portfolio18, an architectural workshop organised at the Lalit Kala Akademi in the city. The exhibition of the works of students pursuing architecture was organised by the Chennai Architecture Foundation.

    The three-day event, which was inaugurated on Friday, showcased the works of students from 11 architecture colleges from across the State. The displays, some of which were thesis works by students, included representations of the topography of villages, architectural works of real estate layouts in 2D formats and printed T-shirts. Hundreds of enthusiastic visitors took a keen interest in the displays.

    A spokesperson of CAF said the exhibition, which was not a competition, would be an annual event. Apart from the exhibition, the event also had open house discussions where speakers talked about architecture and architectural education, the ground reality in academic institutions and the nature of work produced, and experiments undertaken in academic studios across the State.

    In the open house session, students spoke on the theme ‘If I were to learn design, how would I learn?’.

    Another segment was ‘College in Focus’, where representatives of institutions shared their ideas and approaches to education.

    The event had a variety of events of value to students of architecture, as well as aspiring students and their parents.
