Ancient Architecture-I

 

More Pictures

Built on the concept of natural architecture, random rubble (of Goan laterite stone), is used extensively. Normally used for foundation of homes, the rubble has been fitted together like a jig-saw puzzle.

For this feature, masons from neighbouring states toiled a whole day to fix just 10 stones. The rustic U-shaped Goan earthernware roof tiling utilised in Portuguese construction design were carefully chosen and 'collected' over a period of 2 years for use as roof finishing, since they effectively contribute to aesthetics and to cooler temperatures because of their thermal design in ventilation. Current high procuring and maintenance costs of such hand-crafted features of antiquity are sadly and unfortunately not conducive to the economics of cost-effective, present day construction.
