Designer Publications Kerala Private Limited has been in the forefront of facilitating architecture since its inception over a decade ago. Having come out with Kerala’s first architecture magazine, Designer+Builder has reached the summit of architecture publications in the local vernacular. The magazine has seen phenomenal growth over the past ten years and is today the go-to source for all the architects in the state.


Our commitment to honor architects and celebrate architecture encouraged us to organize a mega event Titled ‘Sthapatheeyam,’ in 2006. During the past eight years, the event has grown to become one of the most anticipated architecture events in the state.
Sthapatheeyam’15 will see an initiative that has never been tried before with a twin-stage approach. The first stage will witness our annual celebration, ‘Sthapatheeyam.’ The event will see architects with meritorious works honored for their contributions during the past year. With over 200 participants from the construction industry along with the strategic partners of Designer+Builder, the event promises to be a night of celebration, fun and excitement.
The second stage will host ‘SAYA – Kerala’s Largest Gen-Next Assemblage,’ a two-day symposium for students of architecture and young architects wherein they will get a chance to interact with big names in the field of architecture. Students from across the country are expected to be a part of the event which will give them a chance to interact with master architects and exchange ideas with them, and more importantly unite under one roof for a unique experience.

We at Team Designer extend our gratitude for your unconditional support during the previous years, and welcome you to the reformed Sthapatheeyam 2015.
