  1. 1. NRITYA GRAM...
  2. 2. BUILDING DESIGN & STYLE OF ARCHITECTURE….
  3. 3. Nritya gram is India’s first modern gurukul for Indian classical dances and an intentional community in the form of a dance village, set up by odissi dancer Protima Gauri in 1990. Nritya gram designed by “GERARD DA CUNHA” follows “VERNACULAR” style of architecture…
  4. 4. Vernacular architecture is a category of architecture based on localized needs and construction materials, and reflecting local traditions. It tends to evolve over time to reflect the environmental, cultural, technological, and historical context in which it exists. While often not thoroughly and academically planned, this kind architecture played and still plays a major role in the history of architecture and design, especially in local branches. Examples : The black house, Scotland. Vernacular architecture of Rural and Small-town Missouri by Howard Wight Marshall , United States.
  5. 5. Temple at the entrance of Nritya gram. Designed and built by Ray Meeker in 1998. It is fashioned from the raw mud of the locality and was fired after it was built. It is decorated with panels depicting the elements, dance motifs, mudras and designs costumes and jewels. Inside is a granite rock scooped out to hold water and a flame that stays lit. At present the area in front of the temple is used as a yoga centre and also used for meditation.

  8. 8.  Many built parts are of stone masonry.  Usage of arches at many places have been done  Arches which were supported by pressure no mortar between them.  Arches are used to support the stairs and also used as entrances at some place.  The columns and the beams are set out without mortar.  Lots of importance given to natural ventilation and sky lights.
