2010-2014

Environmental concerns and a need for creating environments that consume less and become a constant reminder to return to natural ways of living. With the completion of two very large projects in the last decade, which as a requirement used a lot of glass, we felt it was time to reconsider not only our design choices but also the types of projects we sought.

The need to discover an Indian ‘modern’ different from a regional practice of modernism was the firm’s prime concern during this period. Religious buildings and housing for the poor allowed us to explore themes of modernity grounded in culture and tradition and the real needs of people.
