People have asked what I do each day while we are in Amdavad. Here is the Design Studio and this is it! I sit and read or blog at one of the empty tables. The students and David in the upper left corner spend lots of time here as well as visiting the site, Le Corbusier’s Mill Owners’ Building. They are designing an library and garden on a site adjacent and on the river bank. David moves from student to student discussing their ideas and design. . . . . one on one differentiated teaching !
This building is so amazing. Check out those amazing doors that open up to the outside perfect for the climate. There are always pigeons flying around and we have heard that during monsoon, monkeys seek shelter in the architecture school ! They can be destructive like the squirrels that enter the Green Building at RIP ! Another day, I will walk around the campus and take some pictures. It is filled with steps, and low walls where people are sitting, visiting, and having lunch . It is a wonderful, welcoming place.
Here is the professor architect texting in Incredible India. The tunics are cotton, so they are cool, and quite comfortable.
My friend Jhoan took the image of the studio.
