Parallel Projections, the theme of 59th Annual NASA Convention, will merely play the gateway to the inventory of the parts of one’s envisionment getting lost along the process of it being implemented. The convention will be a prodigious event inviting Architecture Schools from our Nation & beyond to participate, adding to its charisma. A Parallel Projection has a unique capacity of levelling the human eye and its perspective. It levels all indentations to a singular surface, to the extent that it denies the perception of actual form/ space/ reality. It corresponds to a projection with infinite focal length. Propositions are bound to be altered as one tries to frame them into reality, causing the idea lose part of its sheen, making it go unnoticed thereby making its projection mandatory.
Parallel Projections is all set to go live from 16th to 20th January 2017. 59th Annual NASA Convention, happening for the 1st time in Rajasthan, is all set to turn the pages of history over and start a new chapter with its unconventional ideas. SPA, PU alludes that this event will be an experience like no other.
