An excursion trip for second year students of architecture was taken to see, explore, and perceive the ambience of the ruins of valley culture and fort situated in dense the Nanda Devi Mountain Range during Winter End. The students were advised to observe with sketches; photographic images and importantly the insight feel of the Tribal settlement complex.
Further the study also focused on the understanding of the spaces, scales and proportion from large complexes to minor details of carvings and other elements of space making. There was also an attempt to understand the overall character of ghats and its physical as well as religious importance in the cultural heritage of UTTARAKHAND.
The 4 day documentation exercise culminated into various layers of understanding a religious Indian town from an architectural perspective. The students of architecture underwent a rigorous assignment which had widened their visions of architecture and place with an entirely different cultural identity.
