"A monumental effort." The Indian Express
"The strength of the book is its sumptuous illustration. The diagrams that accompany the illustrations help convey the analysis." The Hindu
"Concepts of Space provides an interesting perspective from which to view familiar monuments." Marg
"Pandya guides the reader on a walk through these monuments, ...revealing the worlds within worlds - giving the journey a kinetic dimension that moves the reader forward, inviting him to discover more." Marg
The manifestation of an idea -- architecture -- is a celebration of life. Traditional Indian architecture has ably demonstrated the universality of its communication as well as its validity within multiple value systems.This is achieved essentially by relying on spatial experiences derived through narratives -- dynamic perception of space while in movement -- its kinesthetics. The interactive process of encoding and decoding between the space and perceiver, orchestrates spatial narratives. This book is an attempt at understanding the very roots of what constitutes the Indian context by examining its notions of time, space and existence.
Contents: Interpretation; Application; Rudabai Stepwell; Kailash Temple; Sun Temple; City Palace; Sarkhej Rauza; Inference.
