Anupama Kundoo – Taking Time

In the fourth exhibition in The Architect’s Studio series, the Indian architect Anupama Kundoo aims to shed light on a scarce resource in our life: time.

Kundoo sees time as a forgotten resource in architecture, while architecture is a process that embraces the present, the past and the future.

Constructed as a journey through time, the exhibition explores and integrates traditional Indian building customs, crafts and materials into Kundoo’s current works. In general, Kundoo is concerned with using as few resources as possible in her architecture.

Kundoo works both in India and in Europe. The architect’s own house in the experimental township of Auroville, Southern India, is among her most important works. Auroville arose from the idea of a community where people from different cultures could live in peace and harmony, regardless of nationality, religion, caste or politics.

As a theme in the exhibition, Kundoo’s work in developing Auroville will be unfolded in large-scale models. Moreover, Kundoo is designing a site-specific installation for Louisiana’s Park that will be on view during the exhibition.
