Forgotten Traditional Indian Architectural Techniques

Zehra Ali | Dr. Tamas RACZ | Dr. Tamas Molnar


Abstract: This research discusses about the forgotten traditional and vernacular Indian architectural techniques and the evolution of traditional Indian residences that had courtyards, ornamentation and were planned with social outlook of the community and more ergonomic interior compared to present dwellings. The approach would be to compare and analyse different case studies of three varying timelines (pre-colonial, colonial, and post-colonial) and the development of the residential architecture in the above discussed timelines of India and the modern residential complexes. Also analysing the timeline, when the architects of post-modern colonial times such as Achyut Kanvinde, B V Doshi, Charles Correa started to incorporate modern design ideas into the traditional architecture. The main focus of the research is to define a guideline on how the original useful techniques and solutions of traditional residences could appear in modern multi stories modules to make them sustainable and unique.
