To familiarize and prepare ourselves for fieldwork data collection, the following scrapbook diary was compiled. It contains information drawn from sources at hand. Inevitably, some of the information turned out to be not so accurate. Even our travel route changed closer to the fieldwork.
Selected pages from fieldwork diaries.
Report on Indigenous Architecture and Building Practices in Himachal Pradesh, India
The report provides a visual journey of villages by the project team during the fieldwork undertaken in June-July 2011 in Himachal Pradesh. The images illustrate the richness of indigenous architectural traditions, complemented with our field notes and quotes from key references.
Based on images gathered in the field, 3D reconstructions of objects and buildings were made. These are examples of extracting 3D geometry with textures for Balag temple, another small temple, and volumetric model of Sainj durbargarh.
