Here in Madras

Dakshin Chitra (madras) a traditional center designed by the great architect Lauri Baker
( ). The assignment was to go here and study the architecture of traditional houses in southern India and how they react to the February sun, so I spent an entire day here just going in and out of these thatched roofed houses with mud walls. Almost all where naturally lit. As you can see in these pictures . I would recommend this place to all, if ever you plan to visit madras.
