From panel discussions with eminent architects and citizens in the pristine environs of the Rangoli Centre on the Boulevard at MG Road to Heritage walks across the city, to a series of student competitions for various social initiatives, the IIID-BRC’s Design Yatra has a lot planned.
Central to this leg of the Yatra is the attention to three design based social interventions that will be flagged off as part of the initiative as well.

Speaking on the 15-day event, Shyamala Prabhu, Convener of Design Yatra 2016 and Chairperson Elect IIID-BRC says, “This is an event where we seek to ignite the minds of masses to think in terms of design, function and aesthetic. Our focus is also on social intervention through design and this you will see through the three projects we have undertaken. For the students of design, we believe that such an event and the result exposure will help them start young in their careers and give them a head start”.


The three social initiatives of the IIID-BRC for Design Yatra are:


·         Gathering of funds for the refurbishment of a government school / shelter for boys at Siddapura and making its living conditions much more hospitable for its young students. The application of thoughtful design to this project will encourage more students to stay in school.
·         The second project is to create a community center at a slum that has already been benefitted from the care of an NGO. The idea is to take things further and give the people an aesthetic space to socialize in.

·         The encouragement and smart development of a slum, the third project will undertake the task to improve on the quality of construction and enable vertical growth.

Besides these initiatives, the Karnataka leg of the Yatra will also see panel discussions with top notch architects and celebrities covering a range of subjects and debatable topics in the spheres of design, architecture, aesthetics and urban landscaping.

Design competitions for students to bring in smart design options for the various social initiatives taken up will also be a part of the events taking place. Themes for these competitions will range from aesthetic interiors to smart architectural solutions to promote stronger structures and make them flexible enough for further expansion.

Heritage walks will cover predominant places such as MG Road and Cubbon Park,
Bhoganandeeshwara Temple (Nandi Hills) and Heritage Village (Manipal).
Design College visits to facilitate interactions between students and eminent architects for an exchange of ideas will also take place.

The Yatra will move on to Mangalore and Manipal as well, before being handed over to the team at Goa.
