Expert session by internationally known Ar.Christopher Charles Benninger

On account of the completion of course duration of the first batch at Parul Institute of Architecture & Research (PIAR), the institute had organized an expert session by internationally known Ar. Christopher Charles Benninger for its students who were on the verge of stepping out as professionals of the Architecture fraternity. The session was organised to enlighten the students & guide them towards the correct path. It was further made more fruitful with Book distribution of 'Letters to the Young Architect' authored by Christopher himself. All graduating students were fortunate enough to receive the autographed copy of the same book along with their own Thesis report. The professional Architects of the city, delegates of IIA (Indian institute of Architects) & IIID (Indian institute of interior designers) and members of academia from neighboring institute of Architecture got an opportunity to attend the lecture of Benninger sir on 'Architect in the City'.
