Why did you start The Archi Blog ?
Well, as a student of architecture we had to make a lot of presentations, mainly on architects and their projects. Most of the time we were alloted certain architects by our professors. The main obstacle in the preparation of the presentation was finding the drawings of the buildings. So we had to either spend hours searching data on the world wide web or go to our institute library and find books on these architects and get the drawings scanned. Overall a very time consuming work. So I decided that I would save the precious time of my juniors and other people around the globe. And hence TheArchiBlog was born.
When and Where was TheArchiBlog born?
If you go through my first few posts you can see that they are basically my personnel accounts on my visit to those architectural master pieces during my intern in Torino,Italy. So it all starts in the month of July,2010 at Torino, Italy.
Where did you get these datas from ?
The initial posts are a personnel account on the buildings in Europe which I had actually visited during my internship.Even the photos belong to me and my friend.
The post on Vernacular Architecture of Kerala are from around the world wide web. The purpose was to provide a integrated collection of Architecture of Kerala, as it was scattered over the web space. The reason for doing it is, well love for once place and its dieing culture.
The recent posts are however from presentation made by me, my classmates and my seniors. I hope I have rightly acknowledged them my retaining their names on the presentations.
Anyone you would like to thank for the data?
Well yes. Three batches of B.Arch from IIT Roorkee.
- Batch of 2012(my very own batch)
- Batch of 2011
- Batch of 2010
