Rehri study, India (1972)
This project series documents proposed improvements to the rehri, small carts used as mobile stores, in India around 1972. While rehri were technically illegal, they outnumbered traditional stores in urban areas at this time. Prakash studied their use and effect on city life and argued for the improvement of their design in order to elevate the rehriwallas (rehri owners) and improve conditions in the city. Prakash studied the rehri throughout his time as principal at the Chandigarh College of Architecture.
This project is recorded through a reprographic copy of a drawing of improved rehri designs dating from around 1972.
Materials in this project series were kept in their original order.
