Rachana Sansad is an institution of creative education. Founded way back in 1960, its creation can be attributed to three young architects whose mission was to promote education in the field of Art, Architecture, Building Technology and other allied disciplines.
If we go back a few years before 1960, it was Prof. S. H. Wandrekar, Prof. C. K. Gumaste and late Shri V. G. Mhatre who 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 as its name a status grew other institutions got attracted an blended into the Sansad, making it a progressive educational entity and now it is a place of excellence, with a huge qualified faculty and some very very successful students who have now become stars of the fashion designing world.
