Chennai, Feb 28 (UNI) Architects play a vital role to give an aesthetic value to the buildings and a facelift to the structure, Tamil Nadu Governor Surjit Singh Barnala said here today.
Addressing the golden jubilee celebrations of the School of Architecture and Planning, he said the architects were the catalyst of change, who had been producing novel designs and bringing novel techniques in the construction industry.
He said eco factors should also be taken into consideration. The rich heritage, culture and architecture of our country should be replicated in the construction. Whether it was a commercial complex or a residential apartment or an industry, landscape and greenery should be maintained, he added.
Mr Barnala pointed out that these celebrations and exhibitions would create an awareness about the latest techniques and advancements in the construction industry among architecture students.
He also congratulated the school for undertaking important projects like master plan of Port Blair Andaman, Rural Health Mission Pilot Study of Government of Tamil Nadu and the State level Energy Park of the Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre.
