HARMONY, SIMPLICITY AND UNITY IN DIVERSITY | Tribute to Revathy Kamath Shrish Beri, Architect
LA 63
Known for the creation of low-embodied energy buildings inspired by vernacular traditions, Revathi Kamath holds a special place in the discourse of the built environment in the country. Shirish Beri remembers her while sharing the values of some of her works.
My first encounter with Revathi Kamath happened through the print media way back in the 90s. TOTO Japan had just published its exhaustive book called “581 Architects in the World”. Her work was featured in it, along with mine and that of four other architects from India. I had liked her work, so I decided that I must meet her and Vasant when I am in Delhi. But unfortunately, that did not happen.

But we both kept sharing each other’s vibes through our published works and through some young architects and students of architecture. This happened because we shared common values in life and in architecture like...

• Respect and concern for all life and the environment
• Understanding of the ‘spirit of the place’ and its celebration
• Working with the regenerative and self-healing capacity of the environment
• Appreciation of the vernacular, traditional and artistic expressions
• Consumption of minimal embodied energy by using local, environmentally-conscious materials
