Workshop #1 : Writing Urban Histories

Indian cities have not really been understood with respect to their historical evolution. Often the information is patchy or is just not available. We at CITY LABS wish to address this gap by helping Architects, Designers and Planners write Urban Histories of their own cities.

“Writing Urban History” is an intense , 5-day workshop for learning how to conceptualize and narrate the historical evolution of Indian cities. During this workshop, participants will be given theoretical inputs on key urban theories and will be taught techniques they can use to create a framework for narrating urban histories of their cities. The focus will however remain in narrating the evolution of Urban Form.

The workshop will end with each participant producing a publication / dissemination ready presentation / essay on the urban history of their chosen city.

Who Can Participate

The workshop is ideal for young academics, professionals and senior students of architecture.

Workshop will be conducted from 8th to 12th December 2018.
