The Drawing Board Competition

The Drawing Board is an international competition for architecture students held every year by Rohan Builders and Mindspace Architects.

What is The Drawing Board Competition?

The fundamental goal of this work is to provide a platform for students to grasp the crucial role played by architecture in determining the way communities grow. It was conceived as an attempt to provide architectural students with real-world design issues in real-world settings.

There are two phases to the competition. Students are required to submit their design presentations online in the first phase. In the second stage, the top eight entries, as determined by a panel of judges, are given the opportunity to present themselves in person to an architectural jury. Soumitra Ghosh, Naresh Medappa, Bijoy Ramachandran, Rahul Kadri, Sanjay Patil, Prasanna Desai, Rahul Gore, Takaharu Tezuka, Bijoy Jain, Neelkanth Chhaya, Peter Stutchbury, and Rupali Gupte have all been a part of this initiative in the previous years.

Response to this competition in the last six years has been very inspiring, with over 5000+ students registering from 500+ colleges from 40+ countries, including India. To learn more about us, please visit or follow us on Instagram at

Why do we do this?

Thoughtful and sensitive architecture has been the soul of all our delivered projects. The goodwill and credibility that ROHAN has built over the past 29 years has been heavily dependent on all our architects. With this initiative, we intend to do our bit to facilitate and encourage young minds in the field of architecture and shall always remain grateful to everyone for their support.
