Make Your Work Worth


The Architects Arena - Design Your Own Architecture/Interior Design Studio

Office / Workshop / Studio holds a significant place in every designer's life because from this very workplace your concepts turn into reality. We believe your workspace represents you & the way you work. Our studio is like a mirror , it reflects what we do , how we do & what we are capable of doing. As Architects/Interior designers we all have a dream of having our own studio. The challenge is to design an architecture/interior design studio with workspace for 20-40 people. The aim of the competition is to design a studio which is open for design dialogues , a studio that is innovative in terms of its architecture & interiors and a studio that is beyond glass cubicles & breaks the monotony of a conventional office.


The Great Portfolio - Architecture Portfolio of the Year Award 2022

An Architecture Portfolio reflects academic/professional journey of an individual through drawings & graphics. Portfolios are must for architecture students as it is their only introductory presentation which showcases their working method & style and what the individual is capable of pulling when it comes to designing & software skills. A well designed portfolio is one of the most important document for any architect/architecture student who is looking for a good opportunity in the field of design. The main aim of THE GREAT PORTFOLIO competition is to provide a recognition to some of the most spectacular architectural portfolios.


Archmello Thesis Award

An Architecture Thesis starts with the difficult task of topic selection, tons of research work, case studies, site selection, concept development, design evolution, the presentation & report development. We believe thesis represents you & your understanding of the entire field. Thesis is the most important part of an architecture student’s life as it provides an opportunity to the students to explore a particular design category, address a social – cultural issue through design or work on the futuristic theme. Archmello’s “Thesis Of The Year” award is open to all recent/past graduates & post graduates in architecture. The competition is open for both Indian & Foreign nationals. The “Thesis of the Year Award” is our small attempt to honour some amazing thesis works.

The Attendance - Reconfiguring Government Schools in India

An invitation to all designers to design a government school in India. There are about 10 lakh government schools in India offering primary education but these schools are in extremely bad shape with some even lacking basic facilities such as electricity & water. The major thought behind the competition is to address the issue of the poor condition of government schools in India through architecture by proposing a "Model School" which can be repeated across the nation. Let’s rethink these “Education Temples” of India, let’s redefine these education spaces & recreate a school which could benefit millions of children in achieving a better education.
