Udaipur Workshop will be held between  11-13 March 2022

The Medieval city of Udaipur is a unique historical example of a settlement pattern that is a result of its topography and water systems. It forms a fine study to understand how the medieval cities in western India established a close-knit relationship with nature. 

In this workshop, the participants will learn to observe and analyse the spatial structure of the city, the character of its public spaces and its correlation with topography and water. The workshop will also explore themes of community spaces, urban structures, water systems and the role of civic architecture. The workshop will entail on-field observation & documentation,  followed by discussions and presentations.

The workshop is scheduled to be conducted in Udaipur between  11-13 March 2022.

The fee for the workshop is 6500 INR.

This workshop is ideal for students, academics and professionals from the field of Architecture, Planning, Design, Geography, History and Arts.
