Local architectural techniques and designs showcased at model house
Man quits corporate career to embrace indigenous architecture and build eco friendly homes
Anthony Raj learnt about indigenous architecture techniques and now builds eco-friendly homes using this technique. He is the founder-director of the Centre for Indigenous Architecture, which promotes wellness by constructing buildings using holistic architectural methods.
Established in 2012, Centre for Indigenous Architecture uses local techniques and artisans to design climate responsive houses.
The houses built in this manner have minimal carbon footprint and are designed to be self sufficient.
Arulville serves as a model house and an eco-tourism destination - for the demonstration of the various techniques and materials used in its construction.
Centre for Indigenous Architecture is located at: Palavakkam
