About TDB

The Drawing Board is a national architecture platform based in India where students can test their understanding and skills in shaping the way communities live and thrive while preserving local heritage. It was conceptualised by Mindspace Architects and Rohan Builders, to provide architecture students real design challenges in real locations. Hosted annually once in the Oxford of east - Pune city, the competition finale itself is a one day gala affair where eminent juries from different countries guide students and eventually help them become the star architects that they can be.
