Research Description

Appropriate Technology in Auroville India
I will write a thirty-page illustrated paper that documents architecture in Auroville. This will add to the School of Architecture’s internationalizing mission. In addition, I hope to publish a research paper in collaboration with Prof. Baweja. I will prepare the illustrations for the paper, using digital architectural tools.
