Over the last few yeras, there has been an increased confidence in vernacular aesthetics in contemporary Indian design languages. That is why this panel discussion featured three renowned names speaking to how the vernacular acts as an anchor for a variety of design & architectural projects. “In today’s modern living, the kind of homes we create are luxury homes, but we try to use the vernacular to give context to people’s roots and where they come from,” said Shabnam Gupta. Khosla and Wakhloo added to this, explaining how in their architectural practices, no matter how modern a project’s vision might be, vernacular tropes help to locate it in a fixed time and place.
