3D For Heritage India - Workshops

Wed, June 01, 2022 Workshop

The project ‘3D for heritage India’ held three workshops on the 4th and 5th April 2022. The workshops focused on the aspects of knowledge dissemination, reflections on an upcoming policy brief and guidance document with government authorities and the future possibilities with the data collected.

The first workshop was an interaction with the students and studio tutors from the Architectural Conservation Studio of the Masters in Conservation and Regeneration Program at CEPT University. They are using the 3D data obtained in Bela to develop conservation and design proposals for houses, the marketplace, and the village’s fortification. During the workshop, the students presented their in-progress work, which was commented on by their studio tutors Khushi Shah, Jayashree Bardhan, and (TA) Deepthi Varghese (from MCR FA CEPT) and members of the project’s research team. The discussions revolved around using, interpreting, and representing the 3D data and the drawings for case-specific design interventions. The students presenting were: Mitali Parmar, Vaibhavi Bhojkar, Gayathri S Kumar, Shivani Singh, Shukla Vyoma, Parvati Poduval, Apoorva G., Mrunal Nidadavolu, Revathi Anandan, Vidisha  Purohit, Swati Bhardwaj, Dushyant Singh.

The second workshop on policy impact aimed to explore possible avenues for implementing certain aspects of the project in real cases using existing funding and policies in Gujarat. Each institution part of this project presented a short brief on its contributions, followed by a discussion. The discussion informed the current development of a Policy Brief containing a set of recommendations for institutional arrangements, funding schemes, and overall strategies aimed at governmental and heritage institutions, authorities, and stakeholders in Gujarat.
