Walk for Arcause is designed as a campaign for awareness on the role good design can play in changing lives. We do this by taking thoughtful, empathetic and sustainable design ideas out of the elite circle of discussion to the masses. We focus on the difference architects and designers have made, through their holistic interventions, in different spheres of life. Conversely, this walk is an opportunity to identify action areas through interaction with communities in villages, towns and cities along the way and throw them open for designers to act. The overall intent of Walk for Arcause is to bring the focus on architects in the social realm and on Architectural Social Responsibility.
India is celebrating its 75th year of Independence and this walk celebrates the spirit of India and its architecture.
Arcause Showcase is designed as a platform to display socially relevant design ideas and projects from the design fraternity. It is a collection intended to take design ideas out of the elite circle, to all people and spread design awareness and literacy.
