Welcome To NCRRWA 2018:

The importance and understanding of our regional strengths is a must in architecture. Even as we march forward in time, we cannot afford to forget or let go of our ancestral knowledge bank, which is rich with solutions even for the problems arising in design and architecture in the current times. It has often been seen that the best sustainable solutions in architecture, emerge from local and traditional wisdom.

Many practitioners and academicians in the field are working in the said area and there is immense volume of research, experience and case studies accumulated by them over their working years. With this in mind, the School of Planning and architecture, Poornima University is organizing the national conference on Reviving Regional wisdom in Architecture (NCRRWA)-2018. We would like to invite papers/research and speakers from around the country to share their knowledge and experience with us and enrich the conference.

We are anticipating around 200 participants through a two a day conference. We are also planning to host live demonstration in fields of craft and grass root initiatives in the vernacular approach.
