Handicraft and technology
This film concentrates on one particular project of the contemporary Indian architect, Raj Rewal : the world bank building in New Delhi. This is an architecture where modern requirements are met by fusing technology with the still living Indian stone craft tradition and a feeling for nature. The various design elements, the spaces and the way the light is controlled in the building are some of the aspects explored. The aim is to bring out the relevance of this approach by showing the architectural context of Delhi as well as the situation of the site, the methods and tools used in both the design and construction work in a project of this nature in India today, and the impact of this architecture on a user.

Interviews with the client, the architect and the user, a voice - over, live sound and music appropriate to each sequence make up the sound track of this film. The whole process, from the conception of the building’s design, to the various phases in its construction to its final furnishing and decoration by the placing of paintings and textiles in the finished building are all seen in the light of the theme of Fusion.
