Description

International symposium discussing the time-based architecture of the Bimanagar neighborhood in Ahmedabad, India.

The symposium will introduced findings from an ongoing research into the architecture of the estate relating the design project by eminent architect BV Doshi, its original implementation, and its transformation over the last 30 years. The first two blocks of presentations brought together the perspective of academics and practitioners studying the project from different but complementary angles, such as its historical and political context,
regulatory framework and everyday practices, culture and memory, and storytelling. The final block counted with the participation of some key actors in the co-production and transformation of Bimanagar who shared their perspectives and personal stories.
