B.Arch Thesis: JASHAN-e-PUNJAB By Harkunwar Singh Kanwal, School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi

A culture rejuvenation center to celebrate the gallantry and valor of Sikhs as a warrior community and the living culture of Punjab.

The idea behind this architectural intervention in the city of Amritsar is to hit the psychological nerve of the people and make them spiritually aware about the rich culture they belong to and rejuvenate the socio-cultural essence of the city and the state. This proposal is foreseen to add to the already booming tourism of the city. It showcases Indian culture, crafts and sports on a global level and exhibits culture of rural India with all its colours and vigour.

Being in the centre of the city, the area has the potential of turning into a landmark, which can connect, visually, to other important tourist spots. At the urban level the goal is to create a permeable urban space that is versatile and democratic in nature. This public space will thereby create a safe, active and entertaining environment; and enhance the area and its surroundings in terms of an active pedestrian friendly zone.

Kecherile Veedu, at Kecheri, Thrissur, Kerala, by Finder Studio

Traditional Kerala homes are rich in memories; of the long-forgotten smell of the first rain, the sound of raindrops falling in the courtyard, people sitting and conversing around it, the feeling of the warmth of mud walls and wood,  the coziness of spaces;  one may find him or herself drifting into their nostalgic memories of yesteryears every once in a while. – Finder Studio
