Principal's Message

Prof. B. Ramathirtha, Principal

I have always been fascinated with negative spaces and how well they could communicate stories of life. In the world around me, these spaces - illustrated courtyards which inspired conversations and further as green pockets within the cities that have brought communities together. Through the roles of architect, planner and now an educationalist, I have always facilitated the negative spaces to engage, inspire and revive the stories untold.

Today, We at VARAHA, are here in one such space that defines the boundary of utopian and dystopian worlds of architecture. And I’m facilitating my fellow students, to read in between the lines more effectively and produce better composed stories through architecture.
On this note, I see VARAHA as a potential courtyard that allows students to breathe in fresh possibilities and revive the old values. We have never seen any boundaries to imbibe architecture at VARAHA and through our expertise we are here to erase them for our fellow student. We are all here to narrate stories and our stories in architecture are made of concrete and hope. In VARAHA, we are here to make these hopes into sustainable, green and well cherished certainty.
A fellow student of architecture.
