Wood as an understructure is very common in India since centuries. Especially in Kutch it is very well adapted with the sloping roof technique with traditional designs. Mr Sarwan Bishnoi, a descendent of a carpentry family, associated with Hunnarshala in its post-earthquake rehabilitation activities. During this period Hunnarshala researched the possibilities of contemporary practices in these types of understructures through different projects. The artisans were mentored by hunnarshala to master these types of understructure techniques and later were encouraged to start practicing the same on their own.
