It is our pleasure to update that:
Blue Lines of Kolkata, the first publication by SEARCH, is now available for purchase at amazon.in (Here is the link).
The book is the collection of concerns, ideas and concepts on canals of Kolkata. City's canal network, originally the backbone of the drainage system, today, is in a state of despair. SEARCH Workshop 16, organized by SEARCH in collaboration with IIT Kharagpur in December 2016, recognized potentials of the water network in Kolkata and explored architectural and urban design options to create sustainable and usable canal-side spaces. Blue Lines of Kolkata begins a much-needed introspection by re-looking at this unique landscape component in Kolkata’s urbanism.
Proceeds from the book will go to SEARCH, a non-profit trust, for the use of its future charitable activities.
SEARCH and Department of HSS, IIT Kharagpur present the Search Workshop 18 at IIT Kharagpur's Salt Lake Extension at Kolkata from 21 to 27 December 2018. Apply now to be a part of an exciting and enriching studio to explore and co-construct the visions for Adiganga (Tolly Nullah).
