The essence of traditional and contemporary architecture in New India | ACE Update
Traditional Indian architecture is akin to a polytheistic religion where different ways and approaches ultimately point towards sustainable designs. As we reel out of a major pandemic, globally, the importance of these practices has found a renewed interest. Likewise, from vertical high-rises in cities to horizontal construction in suburbs and mud huts in the rural areas the architecture of India is a testimony to its democratic identity which engages with its own ancient building techniques while keeping an eye on the evolution of architecture. As India celebrates its 75th year of independence it is necessary to understand where this symbiosis is heading.
Keeping this in mind Ace Update Architecture & Design Series conducted an interaction on “The essence of traditional and contemporary architecture in New India” on 24th September 2021.
