Description

The manifestation of an idea—architecture—is a celebration of life. Traditional Indian architecture has ably demonstrated the universality of it communication as well as its validity within multiple value systems.This is achieved essentially by relying on spatial experiences derived through narratives—dynamic perception of space while in movement—its kinesthetics. The interactive process of encoding and decoding between the space and perceiver, orchestrates spatial narratives. This book is an attempt at understanding the very roots of what constitutes the Indian context by examining its notions of time, space and existence.
