The Architectural Invocation Project 07
What architectural values do drawings convey?
Bijoy Ramachandran is an architect and urban designer based in Bangalore.
He currently runs Hundredhands, a design studio, with his partner Sunitha Kondur.
Bijoy has a Bachelors degree in Architecture from BMS College, Bangalore University and a Masters degree from MIT in Architecture & Urbanism.
Bijoy is currently the Design Chair in the Department of Architecture, BMS College of Architecture, Bangalore.
Apart from his architectural practice, he has also made three films. ‘Architecture & the City: A Bangalore Perspective’, a documentary feature he made on professional practice in the city in 2005. In 2008, he produced ‘Doshi’, a documentary feature on the Indian architect B.V. Doshi, directed by Premjit Ramachandran. In 2019, Premjit and Bijoy made ‘Doshi: The Second Chapter’, a series of conversations with Mr. Doshi on life after 90 and the Pritzker recognition.
The Architectural Invocation Project, by SEED, is essentially a campaign of hope towards a more meaningful future for architecture and design. It attempts to articulate critical questions concerning the academics and practice of Architecture through significant practitioners in the country. The extremely short duration of the video bite makes it both challenging and absorbing, thereby presenting itself as small packets of wisdom. As a new school, seed will attempt to assimilate these into an organic academic spirit which is beneficial for the students, parents and the peers.
