Within this scenario, Traditional methods and techniques present a humane, inclusive and sustainable approach towards architecture and place making.
Building on contributions from various architects, planners, educationists and decision makers from across the world, this book published by INTBAU India, edited by Architect Deependra Prashad presents the arguments, axioms and case studies epitomising the contemporary utility of Tradition in New Architecture and Urbanism across the world. The Book includes a Foreword Message by HRH The Prince of Wales.
