AR. Rahul Rawat & AR. Pravin Mali

In his presentation, ‘Reinventing the tradition for better future’, Ar. Praveen Mali focused on the benefits of traditional load bearing brick construction over R.C.C construction by demonstrating his own projects.  According to Ar. Mali, load bearing brick construction technologies for low rise constructions prove to be cost effective and there is considerable reduction in embodied energy of the structures as compared to the R.C.C. structures.  Provision of good quality, low cost, load bearing brick houses in rural areas can relieve the Indian cities from load on infrastructure due to urbanization, to some extent. Er. Mahesh Chavan and Ar. Reena Chavan touched upon the basics of arch terminologies and strength of arches. Ar. Reena Chavan emphasized on aesthetics of brick arches along with the strength and sustainability.

The presentation was followed by a two days hands on workshop on brick arches, domes and vaults construction. Students from architecture and design fraternity actively participated in the activity. The experience of onsite construction with skilled labours, broadened the students perspective in terms of  handling of materials and tools in construction activities.
