Spaces in Transition [Book]

Narrating the lives of construction workers from Architectural perspective

Life of construction workers — from home to site

Often construction workers are forced to live in squalor like conditions in labor camps where families are crammed in as minimal space as possible with absolutely no regards to health and hygiene, let aside preserving cultural values.

Introduction: Construction workers are the unsung heroes of any architectural project. They appear on the site as the project begins, work throughout the duration and magically disappear as the project ends. Not only their contribution towards the project goes ignored, but sometimes their human values are also compromised. Often these construction workers are forced to live in squalor like condition in labour camps where families are crammed in as minimal space as possible with absolutely no regards to health and hygiene, let aside preserving cultural values. So to understand other aspects of lives of construction workers and shared responsibility we bear towards them as architects, a batch of students of architecture researched the topic and published their findings in the book — Spaces in transition.
