Tuesday Thoughts – 28 November 2017

The thought of the day is inspired by one of the legends in low cost, affordable architecture in India. Apart from low-cost architecture, he was the pioneer exposed brick facade, brick jaalis, and maximization of light and ventilation. He was British born Indian Architect, Laurie Baker.

The nib on this is fabulous. Got hold of this from Mr. Awasthi of Kanwrite at this years’ Pelikan Hub.

  1. Lovely pen, lovely quote. And you made me look up Laurie Baker: really a fascinating architect working with vernacular traditions. He is likely to become an inspiration in my own new architectural adventure.
