An eye opening collection of farmhouse designs, by architect Gauri Makhija, will be showcased in New Delhi on Wednesday.
The first exhibition will take place at the National Museum of India (NMIM), and the second at the Jeevan Vihar Art Gallery in Delhi.
“The collection of 40 new farmhouse design will be presented at NMIM,” Makhika told The Hindu.
“It will be one of the first time we will show this collection of architecture in the country.
It is a collection of different styles that is new to the country.”
Farmhouse designs have a long history in India.
They have been used as home design motifs in villages and in the homes of urbanites for centuries.
Makhiya said, “The inspiration for the collection came from the theme of ‘Rural Village Home’.
The idea is to explore the idea of rural rural villages.”
Heritage houses have been the most popular motifs among urbanites, who are fascinated by the simplicity of the designs.
The new collection will feature a mix of classic and modern styles.
Among the new designs, there are modern and traditional designs, while some designs were inspired by Indian culture.
The designs range from simple to grand, but always featuring modern touches.
They were inspired from the work of British architect David Foster Wallace, and inspired by the architecture of India, Makhia said.
Machika said she hoped the collection would spark interest in Indian architecture, especially as it is a trend setter.
“It is an opportunity to share our history with people,” she said.
“The idea is not just to show these houses, but to celebrate Indian culture and history.”
