Pune: “The three dimensional space is the canvas before an architect and he has to design the building or other construction in that space,” said Mr. Ajit Rao, an Eminent Architect. He was speaking as the chief guest of the inaugural function of MIT Art, Design and Technology University’s MIT School of Architecture, at Rajbaug, Loni Kalbhor, Pune. Prof. Dr. Vishwanath D. Karad, Founder-President MIT Art, Design and Technology University, Pune presided over the function.
Mr. Barjor Cooper, an eminent architect was the guest of honor. Prof. Dr. Mangesh T. Karad, Secretary & Trustee, MAEER’s MIT Pune, Dr. Vijayan Immanual, Vice-Chancellor, MITADT University, Mrs. Jyoti A. Dhakane, Executive Director, MAEER’s MIT Pune, Prof. Deepak Mandke were present on this occasion.
Ajit Rao said, “Architecture can be defined in many ways. e.g. it is the combination of creativity and engineering or art and technology. We have rich tradition of architectural construction for thousands of year. Of course, the western world has made a tremendous progress in this field. Hence the future architects should make a golden mean of these two ways of architecture. The panchamahabhutas are to be used for erecting a construction. But spiritual aspect should not be forgotten. Again, in the practical life we have to optimise the beauty and reality to be a successful architect in the market of buildings.”
Prof. Dr. Vishwanath D. Karad, “There is no intelligence in constructing the building like keeping match boxes one over the other. We have tried to make blend of Greek-Roman and Indian traditions while constructing the buildings of our institute. The people who developed this constructions, especially the temples thousands of years ago. They had no any formal education like today but had great understanding and insight of the nature and the people.”
Mr. Barjor Cooper said, “So many great people have created beautiful buildings and cities even like Chandigarha and so many others. So we should try to absorb their skills in ourselves to do superior constructions than those. The demand of architects is rising in the world because the people have got the quest of beauty in the buildings.
Prof. Dr. Mangesh T. Karad said, “The world is becoming a small village. The different civilizations are merging in each other and the global civilization is arising. During this process, we should absorb all the positive points in it and develop new skills which will have a rich contribution to the world.”
Dr. Vijayan Immanual expressed his thought on the occasion. Mrs. Jyoti Dhakane gave the welcome speech. Prof. Sneha Bist compeered the function. Prof. Sudhir Rane and Aditi Deshpande introduced the guests. Prof. Deepak Mandke gave the vote of thanks.
