PRAKRUTEE was conceived as a participatory process towards building eco-sensitive building design. In this four day Charity event, teams of young aspiring architects from seven architectural colleges from Pune, faculty and environmentalists developed an eco-sensitive design for a community Environmental Hub in an urban local park in Pune. The participant teams were exposed to numerous learning and discussion sessions focusing on sustainability principles, eco housing criteria, resource management practices etc. Senior architects and environmental experts who are experimenting with alternative materials, solar passive architecture and energy conserving techniques in construction interacted with the participants in this event.
