Scope and Content

File documents an executed project for a private residence in Ahmedabad, India. The house is constructed of concrete and earthen bricks, which were made on site and pressed from the dry earth excavated to lay the foundation. Courtyards act as semipublic "interior" zones and generate much-needed shade in the hot, dry climate. A pool lined in green marble provides additional passive cooling, and local trees planted around the house will also retain water as they grow.

File contains photographs, models, and a video recording.
