Revathi Kamath, the ingenious architect who have put life into mud architecture and brought its diversity, durability, and dazzle to the world, was a keynote speaker at WADe Asia 2018. The empathetic entrepreneur who runs Kamath Design Studio in New Delhi has a long, enriching and swaggering career to claim with a plethora of projects under her belt. Revathi has revolutionised mud which has been considered a conventional material in India albeit for the underprivileged sections. Her inclination, inclusion, and passion towards it has triggered sensitivity and has inspired many architects to incorporate it in their aesthetics.

Her work emulates a tradition of building with earth and is in sync with the fact that the mud structures in Goa and Kerala have stood by the test of time and are standing tall for more than a century outdoing the lifespan of many concrete structures.

Having been working for over 38 years now, Revathi practices with her husband Ar Vasant Kamath and son Ar Ayodh Kamath though each of them drive their individual projects yet garnering the power of shared learning.

It was so enchanting and enlightening to know about her journey and projects which candidly reflected her consideration towards the needy and lesser-privileged.

Her first encounter with mud occured in her first project which was a slum where people lived under a flyover in Shadipur depot. They collected materials, dabbed a hole, collected mud

and then mud-plaster their living area. That is how and where her imaginations with mud sprung off which later shaped into colossal classic constructions.

The comprehensive presentation was all about miscellany projects hovering over different socio-economic strata and always exuberating her penchant towards being biological friendly as far as possible while simultaneously uplifting the ones in need.
