Paradigm of Projects: Process and Progress
by Saurabh Malpani

A decade of Practice of Artha Studio: a few finished projects, few in execution and few that are never going to get built. The process of idea generation, conceptualisation and contemplation to project completion is always a stimulating journey which results in overall evolution of the studio. The studio does not follow any staunch and prosaic ideas for any program and is neither radical in the design approach. Their design undertakes the use of sustainable solutions by merging the contingencies of art, craft and culture. Their constant endeavour is to innovate and manifest the most appropriate design that evolves with social patterns and the alternating hybrid character and culture of our society.
