This initiative of teaching students learn about the history and old design elements is very helpful…
Not only in studies but also understanding climate responsive architecture.
Having so many great architects and mentors of different fields is very amazing and productive.
And the video making is best…..and knowing the history of havelis and chandni chowk
And the kind of environment I felt during the workshop was amazing ?

We were happy to have such enthusiastic students participating in our workshops.

Jugaadopolis was the best workshop i had ever attended. Under the guidance of such great Architects and mentors we not only gained lot of knowledge but we explored our creativity as well. The new mode of presentation by making video / film was the best part, which kept our enthusiasm alive since the very first day to the last and we started paying more attention to the minute details because of this. Spending days in the havelis brought us more closer to our heritage and evoked a sense of responsibility as future Architects. Workshops like jugaadopolis should be conducted and I am anxiously waiting for the next announcement.
Experience was incredible…
Jugaadopoils let us to move out of the box, to tell us that architecture is just not about construction and design but also of rennovating buildings, heritage…
We learn a lot about our heritage our culture which was depicting in those Havelis…
We met great architects and work with them…
Our mentors help us a lot with interacting people and give a bigger exposure to look over the architecture…they all were very sweet…we learn a lot and i really want to be the part of it again and again…
Experience was simply wonderful and looking forward to have this experience again…
It is always a pleasure when innovative thinking is met with inquisitive minds.
Thank you for being a part of our workshop and producing such an impressive handout.
Jugadopolis was surely the most unique experience i had in 3 years of architecture , pushing us to think creatively was a bliss. I saw a place i used to visit daily from a totally different perspective it was like a world inside world . In the Ancient hawelis, crowded lanes, etc we got to see essence and heart of chandni chowk. We learned softwares that i never thought of in 2 days in the most comforting environment and learned to be a “team”.Interaction with locals seeing their life and learning from such humble teachers was a pleasure and i would love to go to as many “jugadopolis” as i can .
The biggest success story that came out of this workshop was how well all you students worked and what spectacular films were presented to us. It is always a pleasure to teach innovative practices, but it is more satisfying when those new ideas are accepted so well.
“I really enjoyed the whole Jugaadopolis workshop. It has been insightful and I liked the way it was delivered. Genuinely one of the best workshops I’ve attended….Under the guidance of such great Architects and mentors. I was very impressed with how you were able to balance working with all of us as individuals as well as a group. Spending days in preserving the heritage of old havelis were acknowledged. Although we get to know about the new mode of presentation that is video making (a short film) which was the best part. It would be great to be part of this workshop again. And I’ll be waiting….. ?
The entire experience was equally interesting and pleasing for our entire team. We look forward to having you in many of our future activities.
It was a really exciting experience for us, we got to learn about the history of the buildings and learn how to make videos , do research ..interact with people and present everything in a more interactive manner. The mentors were really helpful throughout the whole process , providing us with the necessary guidance. All in all it was a very good experience and I would want to attend it again
