Event Description :

We have always in some way encountered a beautiful experience, a beautiful object, a beautiful space or simply the idea of beauty.

Thi...s has over sedimented years, been instilled as some formula, though also debated by many as being subjective, or as 'beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder'. This formula of beauty has been debated over thousands of years, by philosophers, poets, authors even mathematicians!

Why is beauty important to mankind? Is it art? Is all art beautiful? What is the purpose of art? Is beauty timeless? What is time for us? History? Tradition? What values do these concepts have for us today?

In today's time, where the world has almost taken a new turn, and to earn another millennium on the planet, everything will need to change; be redefined.
We will need to rethink our processes, notions of growth and time.
We will need to shift our gaze from bling to blurs, from always being certain about the destination and an end, to simply allowing a flow but at times tread lightly on our earth.

Ms. Samira Rathod is the principal architect and founder of Samira Rathod Design Associates (SRDA). Established in 2000 in Mumbai with an uncompromising sense of ethics and passion for design, it has built an enviable portfolio of a variety of architecture, interior projects, furniture designs and art installations. She also founded the SPADE India Foundation – a non-profit, discussion forum of architects, designers, photographers, authors, and editors interested in gathering and disseminating unfiltered viewpoints from within the practice of architecture through their critical publication SPADE India of which Ms. Rathod serves as an editor. She is also the founding director of SIRCLE (SPADE India Research Cell) as a means to more deeply investigate influential ideas uncovered through their discussion forum.

Ms. Rathod will talk about notions of beauty and time, and how processes and ideas are significant to change and how in all this architecture can play an important role.
