Architecture unless built is an intangible process of the mind, it translates into a tangible outcome through the Human touch. It isn’t just about making materially requisite construction that answers certain needs, but strives to raise this construction to an art form because just an Art Form, Construction is a resultant of Human Hands.

The bespoke quality of every material coupled with the unique skill of each craftsman where construction is done hands on would carve out the building in its truest state. So every design should support these contingencies, the distinct imperfections and the slow amalgamation in heightening the ideals of Architecture.

Architecture also has the capacity to have a more lasting, resounding effect on the human mind. By engaging all the senses this type of architecture can embolden the user to slow down, reflect and build a bond between our memories and in turn heighten them.

The important questions and answers that attempt to provide an insight into the process of functioning as well as better put forward our ideology.

What happens when one works with Hand in making of the Building and why are they important?

When it comes to Building specifically that is the process of constructing and physical making it becomes imperative for its expression to understand the process and origins of its materials. Hands represent our embodied thinking and these movements get embedded in the quality of the material as well. This intimacy between our Hands and the material, the relation that is built between the two then gets translated into the Building. The act of building with Hand is a rather slow affair. This leads to a more gradual controlled evolvement of materials, craft and the effectual traversing of time. This gives more time for reflection and leads to a deeper, more innate understanding of the material, leading to a better well rounded and fuller act of Building itself.

What does the involvement of the

Human Hand do?

Our Hands are our in a way the reflection of our thoughts. They are the vehicle to understand the tactile outside world. They are the means to experience one of our important sense of touch and thereby be a part of this visceral world. Hands are the tools to materialize our ideas. They help us build our identity and put our endless thoughts into verifiable actions. Our Hands are the bridge between doing and thinking, connecting the inner mind to the outer body. Working with your hands let you carry that memory with you.

How do these processes affect the people or the users of the Building?

The act of Building with Hands lends a sole, surreal, identity to the Building, one that would be unique to itself. When we see the imprints of Hand we identify ourselves in and with the space itself which then go on to become the dimensions of our own existence there and part of our own story. They help in driving our narrative, making the user feel human and part of the larger landscape through this Building.

By including these processes while making of the Building what effect does it have on the Human psychology?

Human senses are our way of interacting, creating and engaging with the world. By building with Hands we are implementing this sense of touch and become more aware of our surroundings. Through our various activities we then become fully aware of the material and our surroundings. And only after we pay undivided attention to our environment do we become aware of the absoluteness of the Time. Building therefore has the power to transform, create and safeguard our memories. The choice of the kind of materials and systems then vastly determines the way users interact with the built space.

Why are crafts important?

Craft essentially carry with them the ‘richness of culture’. In the built design they reveal how things have been thought while constructing, thereby suspending and expanding our experience of it. ‘Craft’ and ‘Material’ are the only components which have permanence in the Building. They are the bearers of the traditions, the ethereal quality of Building, and celebrate the essence of it.

What is the intend to achieve by getting human imprint in architecture now when we have technologies which give you similar products and faster construction ?

The presence of human touch is important to me because the quality each Craftsmen and Artisans get in is very unique to the person who made them since it’s a consequence of their knowledge and experience. I feel they bring out the true nature of these materials. Also it leaves so much scope for customization.

And there are replacements of various products available in the market where they have similar items which you can get in much cheaper prices, but it’s similar to why an handmade pot is different than the machine molded ones, always, I think in my case it’s the quality of handmade pot that I aspire to do with my buildings.
