This is a story of a culture that has persevered for 75 years; a film-in-the-making about an institution at the heart of India's design heritage.
Three-quarters of a century ago, Delhi Polytechnic's Department of Architecture was conceived as an institute for training working professionals in the field of architecture. Over the years, the department witnessed various evolutions until it eventually took up the name - the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi. Since then, the institution has fostered minds that have affected change not just in the architecture of India but also across varied fields of art, design and culture, quietly earning itself a niche in the country's cultural zeitgeist.
