Point­ers to Sidhartha Tal­war’s pre­sen­ta­tion

Architecture + Design - - Event -

Sidhartha ini­ti­ated the pre­sen­ta­tion by walk­ing the au­di­ence through re­cent projects un­der­taken by the Stu­dio, il­lus­trat­ing the col­lab­o­ra­tive and it­er­a­tive de­sign process that forms the back­bone of the prac­tice. Hav­ing estab­lished the ethos of the prac­tice, Sidhartha delved into the core prin­ci­ple that mo­ti­vates the team – Cre­at­ing Mean­ing, Cel­e­brat­ing Con­text – through the ex­am­ple of Krushi Bhawan, a re­cently com­pleted gov­ern­ment fa­cil­ity in Bhubanesh­war.

The de­sign and ex­e­cu­tion process for the State Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture & Farm­ers’ Em­pow­er­ment fa­cil­ity in­volved 150 mas­ter ar­ti­sans from the state of Odisha to cre­ate an ex­em­plary struc­ture bring­ing the folk­lore and mo­tifs of the lo­cal com­mu­nity to life through their own labour and tra­di­tional wis­dom.

With an Ikat- in­spired façade made from pig­mented clay bricks, the build­ing em­ploys pas­sive cool­ing tech­niques to main­tain low am­bi­ent tem­per­a­tures; de­signed to en­able a spa­tial pro­gramme that brings the lo­cal ru­ral com­mu­nity into the fold and fa­cil­i­tates their in­ter­ac­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion with the gov­ern­ment in de­vel­op­ing the best agri­cul­tural prac­tices for the state, Krushi Bhawan strives to em­body the true ideal of In­dian democ­racy – cre­ated for the peo­ple, by the peo­ple, and from the essence of their col­lec­tive cul­tural iden­tity.
