Architecture was more or less identified with housing & more so with elite housing. However, many countries have used architecture effectively for public structures also, such as highways, Metro rails, factories, harbors & many other public facilities. If these structures have to look pleasing, relevant architecture has to be applied in their designs.
The subject of challenges to architecture w.r.t. town planning, infrastructure development & affordable housing is being discussed in various countries through various forums. Late Shri Yadupati Singhania JI, Past Chairman and Managing Director of J.K. Cement Limited thought that we can contribute to this cause by encouraging outstanding talent in the architecture profession as a continuous process & thereby set an example for others in the profession to do better & better. This is how 1st AYA began way back in the year 1990.
To encourage state level architecture, State Architecture awards were also introduced from the year 1998.....
