How to build the future? (short)

Accompanied by construction noises from a new concrete building site behind SAIIER, workers and supporters from Sacred Groves were discussing with opponents of the Sacred Groves project, skeptical Aurovillans and deputies from the Housing Board above big issues: How exactly should Auroville build its future?

Manu begins with an introduction about the importance of ecological construction and about the Sacred Groves housing project. The following discussion sets up all critical points about the project: It is supposed to take too long, to be too costly, and a couple of architects who are present dont believe the buildings to maintain stable into the monsoon. The questions are answered by the founders of Sacred Groves and its volunteers.

The music is taken from the German Combo “17 Hippies”.

Oneness among a myriad cultures

In a recent interview with Mr. Luigi, a lead member of the International Zone  Coordination Group at the occasion of the Meeting held at Unity Pavilion of Auroville on 22nd February 2016, has expressed great impressions on the ongoing infrastructure development plan of the International Zone which is soon being setup in Auroville

He has represented all the Auroville guests, visitors and new comers in the creation of a platform for an International Zone to exhibit and exchange various cultures and traditions of different country nationals who join Auroville. This International Zone is an unique place in India, where different parts of lands at Auroville would be allotted to various countries for the construction of their pavilions in their native design and style. This would create an atmosphere for mutual respect and cooperation and above that empowers exchange of culture and promote Peace among the different societies of the world.

The interesting part is that, these pavilions would be the permanent mission of Auroville International Zone and would be a symbolic representation of the various regions and continents of the world. He later added that, these development plans are being structured with the help of volunteers from India and African student community of Architecture background.

This meeting and interview has convinced me to suggest this International Zone be viewed as an union of a mini world, where various delegates, volunteers of Auroville and other guests and visitors experience the atmosphere of the world cultures at one place, therefore can be regarded as “ An Umbrella of myriad cultures “.
