STAR STUDENT AWARDS
! ! WINNERS ANNOUNCED ! !
All of us have that one design which screams to us to be shared and celebrated! It could be the over scrutinised thesis, the maddening research, the teacher driven (or not) project from studio, the deadline challenging project from a design competition, or a design scribbled just to calm our nerves on an anxious afternoon!
Design Whack brings to you the perfect launching pad to the pool of infinite opportunities. Take your best designs, select the appropriate categories and participate in India's first Student Awards in architecture!
We have all seen Awards for Architects which celebrate their designs in different categories. Similarly, select the category, send us your best work and face your compatriots from all across the nation. We will recognise the King of the Kings for their excellence in academic projects which usually remain uncelebrated!
What are you waiting for? You don't need your teacher's approval. You don't need to work from scratch to be recognised. Scroll down and participate!
