Thomas Mathew – Jury Video – JDADA 2019

JD Annual Design Awards is held every year to celebrate the design breakthrough of our students which showcases well-put together and well-thought of designs from different departments. Months of ideating, design conceptualization go through rigorous jury meeting. Thomas K Mathew, a leading architect was a part of the External jury Panel for Interior Department who shares his experience about the entire collection.

Brief About the Theme:

This year’s theme was Curator.The traditional definition of a curator is someone who takes care of a museum collection. The modern definition of a curator is someone who cares for something enough to study it, collect it, improve on it significantly and communicate it interestingly before an audience. A modern-day curator is a bridge between the idea he is passionate about and an audience eager to know more about the idea.

The students touched upon topics that resonated with their Social, traditional, environmental, historical  causes.
