RVCA Publication and Documentation Centre aims to bring forth publications as research and documentation resource material that augment the pedagogy of architecture. In addition to this, selected student works, design consultancy and research undertaken at RVCA are documented as publications to form a record of college’s work and also as an archive for future reference. The centre is also engaged in graphic design and documentation of the events held at RVCA.

RVCA Publication and Documentation Centre is primarily supported by the RSS Trust – the management of RVCA and is co-ordinated by Prof. Nandita, assisted by a student panel of RVCA. The publications are currently available in limited edition and are available by pre – order from the co-ordinator.

The publication wing is keen to collaborate with architects, authors and faculty from other colleges / universities to bring forth publications with value content in topics related to architecture and its allied areas.
