In the VDA10 lecture series, the foundation day of VDA was graced by AR. Sunil Kulkarni from CORE architects, Pune. Sir Kulkarni is not just a practicing Architect but also a phenomenal artist. Along with the experiences of his professional practice he also shared his work of art through a presentation and emphasized on freedom of mind. He even talked to the students about his projects and what inspires him to excel and go the extra mile with every project. His inclination towards art was reflected in his workshop with ‘Art in Architecture’ as guideline. In his guidance, the students got an opportunity to experience architecture inspired from art. He perceives architecture as functional art and his approach helped students to be more innovative in their own way and think out of box. His believe that Architecture can evoke sensibilities of the society, influenced the individuals to follow his path and be more spontaneous and confident in reasoning their intellect.The way he discerns and creates architecture has really influenced us to the core.
