Literal Duplication, Liberal Contextualism

1 CHAPTER 1: ABOUT THE RESEARCH 1.1

BACKGROUND

In olden days, there was no planning and sketching done in black and white. The chief carpenters used to have the design in their mind and the structure use to be constructed, due to which repetitions of ideas used to be common. But now the time has changed, we have all the modern technologies, techniques and highly qualified Architects, even then why duplication? In the practice of preserving a unique Bhutanese Architecture, it has created a restriction to the architects in letting out their creativity in the country. Such policies in the country has brought a duplication of ideas, whereby leading to duplication of design, conceptually and technically with minimum context. This duplication of ideas in terms of material, techniques and the context has created a gap between the Bhutanese traditional architecture and the architecture prevailing now. Such gap has to be covered with proper study of the place and by encouraging modern technologies and techniques, preserving the old ones.
