Visual narratives of Darbargadh

The studio focuses on imploring various approaches on the site located at Darbargadh, Bhuj. The Toraniya gate and its response toward the space surrounding it are studied. Instead of approaching the structure, the visual narratives approach was taken.  As described by Gordon Cullen's theory, a serial vision method is approached wherein the visual importance of the space and the output of the evolution of the chowk are determined. As the corresponding output, a statement of significance was constructed.
