Join us for a Talk with Rohan Chavan this Saturday, 24 June 2023 at 6.30 pm.
The talk will demonstrate three themes to illustrate the importance of design to make cities “liveable”. The first theme concerns collective housing and creating facilities for the truck driver’s community. As India’s trade and transportation rely heavily on trucks and truck drivers, a profession that has seen a rapid decline in numbers due to negligible amenities and excessive responsibilities. The second looks at the typology of single-family houses in tight semi-urban contexts and the third explores the possibilities of interconnecting the bodily activities of releasing, napping, and rejuvenating in one complex.
