MACI Build EXPO 2012/13 exhibits dumped as waste

A very promising start to the activities of the Architects Association Maldives has ended bitterly for the Maldives National University students who contributed there projects to exhibit at the AAM stall.

MACI were very kind in offering AAM the opportunity to exhibit at the event. AAM had an excellent response from other exhibitors as well as visitors. AAM received over 40 applications for membership.

The exhibits at the AAM stall included large scaled models of projects as well as large printed presentations.

The bad news came this morning, when the students who went to retrieve their work, discovered everything dumped in the waste bins by some workers at the site.

The students were given till 3 pm to clear their work.

We await an explanation from MACI as well as the organizers, Think Associates on how happened.20130201_103636 20130201_103549 20130201_103530 20130201_103628
