The fourth volume in the series The Architect’s Studio is dedicated to the works of Anupama Kundoo. The much-appraised Indian architect aims to shed light on a neglected resource in architecture: time.
Kundoo works with time in architecture on multiple levels – from the research and development of artisanal technique to the construction of buildings without mass fabrication and big machinery. This publication explores how Kundoo integrates traditional Indian building customs, crafts and materials into her studio's remarkable projects. It also presents a number of her most important buildings, including the future Line of Goodwill project.
“For most of us, this year has been a bit of a time warp, with life grinding down to a halt, and yet months passing far too quickly. So it’s surely the perfect moment to dive into this book on the Indian architect Anupama Kundoo, whose mantra is ‘To take time is to be alive’.”
