Looking at the tangibles and intangibles related to crafts in interior architecture and design, this course exposes students to both theoretical and practical aspects of building crafts. This is done through lectures, field research, mapping and documentation, literature studies and design collaboration. The course intends to sensitize students to work with crafts and to incorporate them in contemporary design.

Each group of students studied two crafts based in the city of Ahmedabad, eventually marrying the two to create a contemporary product.
