CURRENT COMPETITION

The Brewed Bar - An Urban Coffeehouse Design Challenge

An invitation to all designers to design an urban coffee house having a mix of open, semi-open & closed spaces. India is usually identified as a tea drinking country, but this is being slowly taken over by coffee as the choice of beverage in some urban centres. The entry of Café Coffee Day ( CCD ) in 1996 transformed the coffee drinking experience in India. Rising middle class, growing brand awareness, and the availability of international experiences at home are fuelling the coffee culture in India. The idea is to design a café which has an equal balance of ambience & aesthetics. Come, join this design movement and be a part of this amazing competition.

THESIS COMPETITION

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. Come, join this design movement and be a part of this amazing competition.
