About the Event

The desert state Rajasthan is well known for its water architecture. The land of forts is also a land of man-made water bodies, exemplifying a culture of valuing each drop of precious water. With the entry of piped water supply and tubewells, most of these forms of water architecture have fallen prey to neglect. The panel shall highlight the history, restoration, and even tourism opportunities around the water architecture. 



About the speaker:


A. Mridul, an internationally awarded architect, has a varied palette of projects in India and the US. His projects are an extension of heritage and contemporise traditional practices to make them timeless, thus modern and futuristic. This is best exemplified by, among others, a massive subterranean step‐well, Birkha Bawari, built out of site‐quarried sandstone for harvesting 17.5 million litres of rain‐water in a water strapped region of India’s arid zone. Mridul is passionate about the ancient water heritage of India. He believes and practices the idea of making India water positive by contemporising the traditional water heritage through its regeneration, replication and mainstreaming. He is currently officiating as Chairman of Rupayan Sansthan, a folklore institute founded by noted anthropologist Padma Bhushan Komal Kothari. He co-founded The Jodhpur Lore, (www.thejodhpurlore.com), an initiative to promote centuries old traditional crafts of the region through workshops and training.

He is a young entrepreneur with a plan in heart and team in place to build a futuristic world which balances technology and environment.
