PLANNING & ARCHITECTURE
• ORGANIC, NATURAL LIFESTYLE
The village is aimed at the city folks who need a refuge away from the noise and pollution of the city. It is also an effort to create an environment that is in sync with nature as opposed to the synthetic and concrete environment prevalent in the city. It is a place where one experiences nature and works and lives with it. A place where one can see the trees change their character with the changing season, hear the birds, feel the wind and experience the outdoors. In short, all that is amiss in the day-to-day hectic and synthetic life that we lead at an everyday level. The Vedic village is to be an environment where one lives with nature without damaging it. One lives in an Eco-friendly environment.

WATER AS AN ELEMENT
The site rainwater is being chanellised into a network of ponds and lakes. It is being used as a design element with leisure activities planned around it. A major water body along the main road is being isolated and treated as a perennial lake for boating.

OPEN SPACES
A hierarchy of open spaces for community and individual gathering and recreation are being planned. The scales are being drawn from the traditional village open squares. The major open space is planned immediately in front of the main entry. This is a large space with a lake forming the backdrop. In front is a plaza with amphitheater and pavilions. This will hold craft melas, traditional dance and music festivals and other events to attract the tourists as well as local residents of Calcutta.

THE FARMS
The farms are to be owned personally but farmed communally. Approximately one - third of the site flanking the main road consists of a rural house while the balance two - thirds is farmland. One fifth of the site is a water body.

EARTH VILLAS
Another part of the village is built by traditional craftsmen - in Earth. They have used “Wattle and Daub” technique by applying earth over a screen made of split bamboo. The foundations upto plinth levels are made in RCC. Above that the structure is made in bamboo, mud and thatch.
