The Idea

www.skillbuildingchallenge.com

Developing countries are faced with enormous pressure to make a successful transition from the pre-globalisation era into the new globalised economy structure. Despite the fact that India is on the fast track of development, the Government is faced with - The challenge to enable majority of the Indians to participate in the benefits of growth and to contribute to that growth.

The current knowledge oriented economy requires a new generation of skilled people capable of competing at a larger, global platform. To do this the largely unskilled Indian labour force must have education and training that equips them for the new knowledge based labour market. One of the sources of the skilled workforce is the vocational education and training system. However, the current system is not being able to appropriately respond to the needs of the market.

A key national issue, therefore, is what interventions are needed to improve the effectiveness of the vocational education and training system.

Essence of Competition

Current architecture trends emphasise aesthetics, design and authorship. With the “Skill ‘Building’ Challenge” we are attempting to overturn this trend and provide a rare opportunity to build history with the design of an ‘International Skill School’ with an overarching social and economic outlook.

The open to all competition challenge calls for the creation of a prototype building of 25000 sq ft built up area which will be replicated and contextualised to be built across several Indian cities. The Skill Building must be a national landmark with an international appeal fusing core principles, design and functioning and act as a benchmark for future training institutions. The building design must unite the various sectors it caters to either by its aesthetic concepts and sensibilities, intelligent and judicious use of materials and generate a sense of ownership and pride in the trainees, enabling them to find a place in the future of booming India.

The ‘International Skill Schools’ need an architectural manifestation capable of expressing its core intention of being a pioneering training facility that aids in catalysing the seamless integration of trainees into the global workforce fabric.
