Natural building Re”search” & Documentation in past for better future
[/av_heading]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

[av_dropcap1]H[/av_dropcap1]ow do we design our future if we have lost our ability to look at our past? When the voice of our future lies in the echoes of the past we have to look back. An old dwelling is a repository of secrets, these remain so until one day the building is pulled down and all is lost; we do our best to uncover these secrets for the future by documenting through photography, on site simple drawing and elegant writings. Documentation leads to research, and research leads to experimentation, which is as important as documentation.
Studying and understanding the reason behind various processes and incorporating them in our designs are the main intents of our Documentations & Research.

[av_dropcap1]W[/av_dropcap1]e visit places that are architecturally intriguing and enticing to our building palette. Our Ageless Villages series is a compilation of such village, streets and homes that respond to the local climate, geography and the cultural identity of the settlement. These documentations aid us in understanding the different building typologies that adorn the villages of our country.
Let us show you our love exploration through our Building Vocabulary section. Here we try to understand the different techniques of various portions of a dwelling by understanding the various techniques and methods of flooring, roofing or plaster finishes. The research eventually culminates in experiments of our own. The idea here is to bring the lesser known technologies to the household of the common man.
Food is always an enriching link to the home and your soul. It is always interesting to understand how our ancestors passed on, as heritage, the same seed that was first sown. They dedicated built storage’s to preserve the seeds and grains. Seed Bank & Granaries section is dedicated to the efforts of all the traditional farmers who then understood the importance of soul nourishing food.
Sometimes we cannot comprehend by looking at the relics of our past; these blanks are often filled after just an interaction with local old Mason-Crafts(Wo)man. Whoever equated the number of silver hair with wisdom, spoke the truth.
Someone who said that we must keep our friends close and our enemies closer said it rightly. We have a segment where we share our basic studies with materials and anti-materials. Why lime is better than cement and why adobe is better than a brick, all questions will be answered here in Materials & Anti-materials.

[av_dropcap1]W[/av_dropcap1]e have been putting effort in compiling our works and experiments in various sections. You can find these documentation on Our Works.
For all our enthusiastic followers out there, we are always open for your contributions to the lot. If you think you have the panache to explore and document natural buildings and their cultural responses, you have come to the right place. You can contribute your stories and journeys through essays, images and videos; we also love illustrated on-site explorations.We are looking for genuinely interested Photographers and Video-Documenters who can help us document our journey through learning about natural buildings.
