This project involved documentation of a historic heritage haveli in Mandawa, Rajasthan, which involved exercises of on-site drafting, photography, sketch making etc. The final product was architectural CAD drawings of the Haveli which were later rendered by hand.

The exercise taught us techniques of measurement used for large projects, on-site work and skill development, AUTOCAD drafting and methods of hand rendering.

Erfurt, 3-6th June, 2019

Understanding Urban Informalities in Delhi (Dariba Kalan) The week in Delhi was about understanding different types of informal settlements in Delhi. We studied Dariba Kalan, in Chandni Chowk, and did a quick settlement study of a block and its responsiveness in a dense socio-urban setting.

Public Demonstration on ‘Sickness of Safety’ The week in Erfurt, was about an interaction between choreography and space, and using wooden sticks as a prop for our choreography. The theme chosen for the same was ‘Sickness of Safety’and it epresented a strong contextual concern.

Jewel, was a photography project, as a part of an elective course in the IVth Semester, IInd Year. It was themed to photography ornaments (jewelery) against the backdrop of construction sites. The idea was to amalgamate the aesthetic and the non-aesthetic; the petite and detailed against the rough and course, and the result was a set of photographs shown below.
