Description

RACHANA SANSAD" , a parliament of creative education was found in 1960, by three young architects whose mission was to promote education in the field of Art, Architecture, Building Technology and other allied subjects.

This education journey began in 1955, when Shri S.H. Wandrekar, Shri C.K. Gumaste and late Shri V.G. Mahatre founded a part-time college of Architecture viz. Academy of Architecture, to assist the employed young men and women to undergo articulated training in Architecture. This enabled middle class enthusiast to study while earning their livelihood and obtain a Government Diploma in Architecture, to practice as professional Architects.

Gradually with experience, other sister institutions blended into the sansad sister institutions blended into the Sansad, making it a progressive educational entity. The institutions that faction under the auspices of the Rachana Sansad are :

a) Academy of Architecture
(Five –year full-time B.Arch. Course)

b) College of Applied Art-&Craft
(Four –Year B.F.A. ( Applied Art) degree Course)

c) School of Interior Design (three year part-time Gov. Diploma and
(Two year part-time College Diploma in Interior Design )

d) School of Fashion & Textile Design
(Three –Year part-time Gov. Diploma in Fashion & Textile Design)

Sansad has recently introduced from the year 2002:

a) post Graduate Diploma in Environmental Architecture
b) post Graduate Diploma in Project Management in Building construction
c) post Diploma Course in Interior Design.

From the year 2005-2006, Sansad introduced the Academy of Fine Arts and Craft which conducts Diploma Courses in Painting, Pottery, Sculpture and other Arts &Craft. In 2006 Rachana Sansad started Post graduate courses in Environmental Architecture, in Construction Managements and Architecture in General. Post graduate courses in Urban & Regional planning started in 2008. This courses are recognized by YCMOU & Council of Architecture.

In the early years, Academy and its sister institutions had to shift from one rented premises to the other, for want of its own building in Mumbai. Having appreciated the efforts and progress of Rachana Sansad in providing educational facilities to the students in Mumbai, the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, leased a centrally located plot of land at 278, Shankar Ghanekar Marg, Prabhadevi, for its permanent building. Thus, Rachana Sansad, was established and registered under the societies Registration Act of 1860 and Public Trusts Act of 1950. It's Registsered office is situated at 278, Shankar Ghanekar Marg, Prabhadevi,
Mumbai 400 025.

Sansad's Academy of Architecture, School of Interior Design and School of Textile Design functioned in temporary premises from 1971 to 1933, till a portion of the new building was ready for occupation at prabhadevi.

On 15th August 1993, all the three institutions started functioning in the semi finished Basement and Ground floor of the new building. Then, the building started rising year after year up to the present 7th floor, thus occupying 72,000 Sq. Ft. where present activities of all the institutions are conducted.

In the year 1994, Rachana Sansad started Diploma course in Applied Art. In the year 2001, a four –year full time Bachelor of Fine Arts (Applied Art ) Degree Course, affiliated to University of Mumbai was introduced the course is also approved by the Government of Maharashtra and A.I.C.T.E.

The Rachana Sansad can boast to have a beautiful Art Gallery and well- equipped hi-tech Auditorium, besides, several other essential facilities like up –to –date Computer lab with latest software, full –fledged photography Studio, workshop for wood and metal as well as tailoring Department for practical experimentation. It is projected to include light, sound and climate laboratories as well as a ceramic studio in near future, thus making Rachana Sansad full- fledged educational institution.

The Sansad encourages its students to participate in extra- curricular which as music, dance, painting, sculpture ceramics, public-speaking, photograph, theatre, etc. for which necessary facilities and training is made available. Experts conduct short -term hobby courses for the students during holiday's and vacations. The Sansad also conducts national and international seminars and conferences for professionals and student.

The Sansad through its various institutions has so far trained several thousand Designers in the field of Architecture, Interior Design and Textile Design, who are working and practicing their profession all over the country and abroad. All the institutions have earned excellent reputation through their high standard of education.

Rachana Sansad which has crossed four decades of its service to the Society has been continuously adding and improving educational facilities in field of Art, Architecture, technology and allied disciplines. It has established itself as one of the leading educational centers in India by winning several prizes and awards in national and international competitions.
