Itspeaks about the meaning of architecture in circumstancesthat appear very different to those with which we arefamiliar in the West. The line of enquiry always revolvesaround the question of “how might architecture improvethe way we live?” is a manifesto for an alternative form ...Itof architectural practice...a testament to the value of aneducation – not a training – and undoubtedly equipsstudents with strategies that are increasingly relevant.The reader is offered beautiful and mind blowinglycomplicated plans of existing settlements that have beensurveyed, not copied and pasted. Evocatively shady interiorviews are set into landscapes strewn with debris; all thedrawings inhabited by people. This is the landscape ofhumanity, where architecture serves as a backdrop, not amonument.’ – The Architectural ReviewAn invaluable theoretical and practical guide to ‘thinking global and acting local’. The bookis based on a ground-breaking course run by the London Metropolitan University School ofArchitecture, in which students produce schemes from research undertaken during field tripsto India.
