Struggles and Realisations of an Architect Tied Down to his Home.
A webinar presentation being part of the series 'The Design Plateau', Organised by Trimble, Powered by Sketchup and in Association with Indian Institute of Architects.
The talk is about the struggles, and more importantly, the realisations of an architect tied down to his home in this maha-lockdown. Our paradigms about architecture, and life in general, have been seriously questioned by this pandemic, and the resultant lockdown. In this age of a super-busy life that we have designed for ourself, this pause has questioned the fundamental definition of our life. I look at the design profession as a facilitator for creating spaces to accommodate and amplify life’s aspirations and urges. Now, that the life is set to change, and the new normal is going to be different, this is a humble endeavour to structure the incessant array of thoughts, and in the process, also an opportunity of life to understand my own house better! Presenter: Ar. Snehal Shah An Urban Designer with 20+ years of experience and expertise in energy-efficient design, micro-level design issues, space optimization, mass housing & project implementation strategies with 300 completed projects in diverse segments.
