Building on the work of practitioners like Laurie Baker and Hassan Fathy, our architectural practice, initiated by the late R.L. Kumar, revolves around promoting the use of locally available materials, traditional building techniques, culturally and climatically relevant building design and building a vibrant community of crafts persons.
Following Kumar's passing,we had started a Tributes Page to acknowledge the tributes and messages of support that poured in from all those who knew him or had heard of him. We keep this page open inviting you to continue sharing your memories of Kumar and also your thoughts on how we could take his ideas and CVA Trust forward.
