Archumen Pro - 2013

Archumen Pro - A Quiz for Architects, was launched last year to commemorate the tenth year of Archumen. The response from architects who participated in the event last year has enthused us to host this event again. The second episode of Archumen Pro was held on the 8th of November 2013 at Hotel Capitol in Bengaluru in association with Dornbracht, Akzo Nobel, Philips and Honeywell.

The finalists were V.Narasimhan and Aparna, principal architects of Venkatramanan Associates, Chetan Noronha from CAN Architects and Riju Thomas from LnS Architects, Prasad from CnT Architects and Balaji; from SDeG Architects, Sindhuja from Spaces Design and Sindhushree from Harmony Architects; Jills Philip from Jills and Saumya and Sandeep from CnT Architects, Vaswar Mitra and Ajeetha Ranganathan from CnT Architects.

The team from Venkatramanan Associates - Aparna and Narasimhan left the others behind and emerged Champions of Archumen Pro who took home a cheque of Rs.30000 and two chairs from Featherlite. The first-runners up were Sindhuja and Sindhushree who have in the past been winners at the student version, Archumen. They won themselves Rs.25000. The prizes were given by Mrs.Tara Chandavarkar of CnT Architects and Mr.Hariharan of BCIL.



Archumen Pro 2012

Ethos and Archumen complete ten years to the day since it was ten years ago that the first-ever episode of Archumen was held on the 9th of November 2002 at the historic Town Hall of Kolkata. To commemorate this occasion and to share the same with the fraternity that has been supporting its endeavours, Ethos decided to host a quiz for architects and launched Archumen Pro. ROCA chose to promote this event as well.

There were over 50 teams representing the top architectural firms in India that took part in this event. The top six teams to qualify for the finale were Naresh Narasimhan and Aparna, principal architects of Venkatramanan Associates, L.Venkatesh from CRN Chennai and Suchitra Deep from Firm Terra Bengaluru, Nagappan from JGP Architecture Singapore and Rahul from Synergy Property Development Bengaluru, Chetan Noronha from Kabir Hira Consultants and Riju Thomas from LnS Architects, Arun Karthik from Design Qube Chennai and Kannan from L&T Chennai, Vivek Chandran from Embarque and Madhuri from CEPT Ahmedabad.

All the teams were sporting and thoroughly enjoyed the evening of inquisition. The Champions of the first-ever Archumen Pro were Vivek and Madhuri who took home a cheque of Rs.50000 while the first-runner up was Nagappan and Rahul who won themselves Rs.25000. The trip from Singapore for Nagappan and from Ahmedabad for Madhuri did not prove futile!

The evening found most architects asking for this to become an annual event.
