The series aims to capture practices with the “one-degree of difference”. Its various tracks create a multi-directional showcase of ideas and innovations that have had a significant impact on the habitats and built environments. Each speaker, be it an architect, engineer or CEO, creates a forum for exchange of ideas and discussions of prevalent issues in the AEC Industries.

361o signifies:

  • The sheer creativity and freshness of thought these speakers embody,setting them apart from their contemporaries.
  • The niche they carve out for themselves – thus the 361st degree that breaks away from the 360o standard and reality is defined by newer horizons of exploration they unearth/carve out for the rest of the design fraternity and the AEC industry.
