PROJECT SUMMARY

Chaupal - Eco House

This entry from India offers an exploratory case study in the use of environmentally friendly technologies. While conceived as a showcase of contemporary sustainable construction techniques, the project provides important lessons in the untapped potential of traditional design knowledge.

With expressed concern for the ecological footprint of manmade constructions, a harmonic balance of natural, social, and material environments is sought.
