Many political parties have in their election manifestos talked about creating smart cities. In this exhibition on show are my attempts at low cost social housing, which can be attempted on a large scale.

How to counter the scorching hot rays of the sun has been the basis of traditional architecture and urban design in warm climate. The typology of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan and Venice exhibit similar characteristics.

Passive energy saving systems learned through traditional methods can go hand in hand with smart buildings based on state-of-the-art technology.

The first and foremost lesson from past is that we can fuse architecture, urbanism and landscape in our larger projects for low-cost housing, universities, public and cultural institutions.

We can achieve all the functional requirements of today without losing sense.

For several important reasons: The first is clearly to correct or compensate for the absolute silence in the discussion of architecture in the last decade or two.

I am, of course, aware of the global currents but I feel we have to find our own solutions.

For good reason, our discussions and our focus have been on urban questions, or at least we have approached our discussion about architecture through the lens of the city.

Further, the architecture that has been celebrated in India since the liberalization of our economy has been the "architecture of indulgence" – weekend homes, restaurants, resorts and corporate offices; and, as an extension of this limited spectrum of what is celebrated, the discussion is focused on material, craft, and texture in an almost fetishistic manner.

The exhibition should be imagined as a diagram of the curatorial team’s own experiences as practitioners, critics and theorists – at one point, it emphasizes memory and history, but on the other it also makes tangible and hopefully discernible the living chaos of the present.

We are at the threshold of classifying and clarifying the chaos that may be accorded to the present state of architectural manifestations and, rather than a rush to classification, it is important to understand what the presence of chaos or multiplicity means.

The home should be the treasure chest of living.

Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.

Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.

Le Corbusier

I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.
