The final project evolves from several research and design exercises conducted through the initial half of the academic semester. The idea of the project is to insert a pacemaker in the ageing heart of the town of Anand in Gujarat. The site selected is an abandoned factory premise which once boasted of a building larger than any other in the vicinity. The insert now hosts a large machine-like building block that houses municipal ward offices, the scattered folly that provides for outdoor reading rooms and a separate entity that acts as a Balwadi. The movement allows the public to trespass while observing the reminiscence of the past and the present. This project is a manifestation of various ideas of Time, Public and Architecture.
