FRAME is an independent, Biennial Conclave on contemporary architecture in India curated by Matter and organised in partnership with H & R Johnson (India) and Takshila Educational Society. The intent of the 3-day conclave is to provoke thought on issues that are pertinent to pedagogy and practise of architecture in India. The 2019 edition of the conclave focused on the theme, ‘Modern Heritage.’ and discussed – through presentations, debates, open-mics and film-screenings, the history of Modern Architecture in India – especially the history of Post-Independence Architecture. Over 3 days, the 30+ speakers and panellists, and an audience of 600 professionals and 200 students, engaged in a deeper conversation on the theme within and outside the auditorium space.
