About our family

"Rachana Sansad", a parliament of creative education was founded in 1960, by three young architects whose mission was to promote education in the field of Art, Architecture, Building Technology and other allied disciplines.

This education journey began in 1955, when Prof. S. H. Wandrekar, Prof. C. K. Gumaste and late Shri V. G. Mhatre 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 enthusiasts to study while earning their livelihood and obtain a Government Diploma in Architecture, to practice as professional Architects.

The Founders created the Educational Trust, namely, Rachana Sansad in 1960. Gradually with experience, other sister institutions blended into the Sansad, making it a progressive educational entity.
