There were a total of 51 teams in this competition, of which all our 3 teams made it to the final 16. This competition is the culmination of almost six months of a process leading up to the design intervention. The teams were mentored by Richa Sharma with the support of in-house faculty team of Madhavi Patil, Sanghamitra Barthakur and Kavita Sawant. The competition was one of its kind that allowed students to work on a live project. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to MMRC, ORF and their entire competition support team of mentors and jurors for having given this opportunity to academic institutions and guided us all through.
Great achievement for the teams and the Urban Design department at PiCA.
