The village had migration and most of the heritage houses were abandoned and empty filled with tobacco crops, aiding the deterioration. The design intervention was to create adaptive reuse and an awareness ,with the industrial heritage and economic backbone of Dharmaj- Tobacco. This project develops from GroupWork conducted as a part of studio processes that preceded individual lines of inquiry. Click on the button below (view additional work) to view GroupWork.
