‘NAKSA Camp’ By CET Architecture Alumni Body On Aug 10 In Bhubaneswar
Bhubaneswar: The Forum of Architecture Alumni of CET, Bhubaneswar (FAACET) is going to organise an innovative ‘NAKSA Camp’ Noble Affordable Knowledgeable Social Architecture CAMP- to provide on-spot architectural solutions to the economically weaker section at Bhajan Mandap, Old Town, near Lingaraj Temple on August 10, Saturday.
The “NAKSA Camp’’, a first of such effort by any architectural groups in Odisha is surely going to be the cynosure of this year’s event, as it justifies the theme “connect,’’ by reaching out to the needy in our society as many still feel that consulting an architect would make the cost more or even not affordable at all for people from low-income strata.
The ‘NAKSA Camp’ will also provide suggestions or guidance to people to apply for housing plan under BMC/BDA and it will be a pilot project on August 10 for people under Ekamra Assembly Constituency area. Later it would be organised on other occasions in other Assembly segments as well’’ said advisor to FAACET, well-known architect Akshay Beuria.
The first-ever event of “NAKSA Camp’’ will be inaugurated by Social Security and Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, Public Enterprises, Science and Technology Minister Ashok Chandra Panda.
Beuria has requested the residents of Ekamra Assembly Constituency area to come in large numbers to the camp between 11 am and 2.30 pm so that the members of FAACET also can extend their help to the maximum number of people.
It can be mentioned here that FAACET (Forum of Architecture Alumni of CET), is a registered Alumni Society of the Architecture Department, CET, Bhubaneswar, formed in 2016.
It has successfully conducted three alumni reunions in the past with an overwhelming response from all the alumni members. Apart from the regular alumni meet, FAACET also takes up critical social issues and tries to tackle the same with inputs from experienced senior architects.
