Reweave Kozhikode

Reimagining the Comtrust Precinct


Can we reweave the city into a factory building?

Can we reweave our lives today into the buildings of yesterday?

Can we reweave the life of a weaving factory?

Can we reweave the factory into the city?


Reweave Kozhikode was a national-level architecture design competition, organised by IIA Calicut Centre as a part of YAF 2022 hosted by the IIA Kerala Chapter. The competition’s aim was to enable the stakeholders of Comtrust Weaving Factory to understand the possibilities of the dilapidating factory and its surrounding areas, as a project of greater civic significance.
