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.

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.
