Architecture and Attitude - ArchohmThe book demonstrates how C28 C, the building that houses studio Archohm and has gone on to produce more architecture, was conceived with a first principle approach to ensure an effective, efficient and environment- conscious architectural solution.

It also vividly narrates how challenges were met head on, the labyrinthine issues resolved and the responsibility of placing the building’s architecture and its attitude in a contemporary indian context taken on. It shares the story of the gratifying journey called the design process and of how life can be lived through design.
