What is your definition of education? How has it changed over the last 30-40 years?
Referring back to the introduction, I spoke about edifice. Do you see any relation between the etymology of the words, Education and Architecture?
What is the link between being civil and being educated?
In the current pedagogical system, what is your argument? How much theory versus how much practical?
What is the long term future of education in India?
I recently had a small revelation, that why have I interviewed so many architects despite being a UI designer. I could also connect a few dots about why am I so interested in architecture and education. "Architect" comes from the Latin word architectus which comes from the Greek word, architéktōn. Architéktōn is composed of two parts: archi: to be the first, and tecton, the builder. That is, the first who builds. I always found the "builder" word to be very fascinating.
On the other hand, Edifice means a building, but it doesn't mean just any building. To merit being called an edifice, a building must be important. A mini temple can be an edifice or an educational building that can transform you can be called Edifice.
Basically, zen, spirituality, education, architecture, place of worship are all interconnected somewhere in my mind at least, and that's why I have none other than Prem Chandavarkar with us on Audiogyan today.
Prem is the managing partner of CnT Architects: an award-winning and widely published architectural practice based in Bangalore, India. He needs no introduction to the people in the world of architecture & education. With the experience of over 40 years, he is an academic advisor and guest faculty at several colleges of architecture. He has been documenting a lot of his thoughts and ideas online through blogs and videos. I met Prem at Frame Conclave last year and was in awe with his lecture on "Human within the architect". I am going to post as many links as I can find in the show notes. This has already being a very long intro so without further ado, I welcome Prem. Thanks, Prem for giving your time, and frankly I am really short of words to thank you for being on the show.
I also thank Ruturaj Parikh from Matter for connecting me and collaborating with Audiogyan.
