Résumé
The thesis aims to develop an architectural strategy as a comprehensive and creative platform for traditional artisans of Gujarat to strengthen and promote the rich textile and printing crafts through architecture design. The project proposes that architecture can integrate the rural craftwork in the day-to-day life of people and create a positive environment that encourages the local community. Previous architectural interventions and projects like Sanskriti Kendra (A craft village) and SEWA (a social organization) provided a social platform for the craftsmen practicing the forgotten craft. However, these approaches proved less successful in terms of immediate experience of the working process of the art in an urban setting. To integrate the craft and craftwork process in the urban fabric, spatial programming by adapting the craft in new architectural ways is the key approach.
