Building Wise

Availability: In stock

Regular Price: Rs.1,400.00

Special Price Rs.990.00

Quick Overview

BUILDING WISE is a unique exploration of sustainable architecture and habitat design in the 21st century. Featuring the story of 39 extraordinary architectural experiments from India that have revolutionised sustainable living and working, the book is a visual delight and a collector’s item, something that would be of immense interest for everyone, ranging from an architect and building design professional to a layperson simply interested in environmental issues and concerns.

Collated mostly from first-person accounts provided by the respective architects, builders and designers themselves, Building Wise brings to life projects that have customised architectural wisdom and embraced modern innovations to meet newer challenges and unique needs of individuals and communities across the socioeconomic-cultural spectrum.

Projects featured range from a small house in the slums of Mumbai, to the extravagant international airport of Bengaluru and everything in between. The book also puts these architectural marvels in context to the larger imperatives of local and global change in climate and ecosystems.

With over 250 stunning photographs and more than 50 drawings and illustrations, the book brings to light not just the design (focus of most architectural books), but also the designing process and the real-world struggles that went into the building of these projects. By doing this, the book hopes to build and nurture community knowledge to guide solutions for a diverse genre of built spaces. Tracking and building upon these solutions can firm up the roadmap to a more sustainable human habitat.
