I loved the interaction with Takashi Niwa about parametric bamboo. In terms of places visited, I liked Naman Retreat the best, the way it was designed, their use of bamboo in a contemporary and urban style, the usage of green, vernacular architecture in the entire resort was nice. I could find similarities in what I saw and the subject of history of western architecture (buddhist architecture). Even the cafe 43 factory coffee roaster was similar to the project I am working on for the design subject. Observing so many similarities and what we could take home from them was the best part, like the design on the lines of sustainable architecture, usage of natural light in Terra Cotta studio, all this gives me an idea on what my masters in sustainable architecture might entail. I really loved the way how this tour turned out in understanding sensibilities of the place and how they influence architecture, and would definitely give this course a ten on ten.
