Leewardists Urban Travelogue Bundle – South Korea, India, Bangladesh

All books are a product of ’15 days’ of documentation of occupations in Mokpo, South Korea, Chitpur Road, Kolkata, India and Puran Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh with a team of students from colleges in India, France, Bangladesh and South Korea. These travelogues are written and sketched by Anuj Kale and Shreya Khandekar, who are both architects and comic artists. They travel around these cities and through their experiences in the urban territories, they narrate their understanding of the territories, their interaction with them and the people.

With this attempt, we are trying to introduce a new dimension to travelogues – a form of urban travel writing that talks about urbanity and different built environments in a simple and engaging format.

These travelogues have been made in collaboration with many organizations, fellow architects, mentors, professors and students we met during the Indo-French, Indo-Korea and Indo-Bangla-French Workshops. These collaborations are a wonderful means of not only knowledge exchange but also learning from different cultures and people around the world.

Do I need a good internet connection to attend the course?

You do need a decent connection to stay online. However, most of the session is conducted using powerpoint presentations and I Pad sessions which requires only a fairly decent connection.

4 reviews for Case Studies and Site Analysis in Architecture – A Complete Guide to a Pre-Design Process.

  1. Vinitha Milevahanan (verified owner)

    A detailed explanation of all the inventories, neat and clean presentation which is easily understandable. You were a very comfortable and positive guide for us throughout. Keep inspiring us with your knowledge and positivity always!

  2. Akshaya Srinivasan (verified owner)

    Very enlightening!! Loved how they made the entire setup very informal and the sessions especially were so pressure-free and smooth. It was not the typical classes where we were loaded with huge non-understandable lectures…..rather feeding us with small and simple tips explained largely in layman’s terms….easily comprehensible…..which is all that you need to crack the process!!
    (In fact wasn’t able to attend the last two sessions but the recordings and inventory they sent, did well…. helped immensely!)

  3. keerthana nair (verified owner)

    I am a 4th-year student in architecture, and what I didn’t learn three years in architecture school and still would not have learned, was taught to me in a laidback yet to the point in only three sessions. I used to dread this part of the design, as I never realized how important it was and now I feel confident to proceed with my pre-design process.

  4. Vishweswaran Venkataramanan (verified owner)

    it was a very good live sessions,very informative and it boosted my confidence level
