VAIGAI

TRAVEL THEMED STUDIOS – 2021
Foundation Studio – Vaigai

This time round the year, in RVS Travel Themed Studio we have come to learn and understand the River Valley Civilization of Vaigai River. We are exploring the River from its mouth near Ramanathapuram to it’s origin near Theni. Learning through EXPERIENCING, TRAVELLING and just by BEING.

MULLAI

The Mullai Travel Themed Studio explores the forest landscape of the TAMIL NADU as a part of a concept study for the BASIC DESIGN. 

MARUTHAM

Marutham are the plains with vast expansive land with a rich and a fertile land that can grow anything. Marutham is denoted by the farmland that feed the nation. 

KURINJI

The name of the region, Kurinchi, is also the name of the famous Kurinji flower from the lofty hills of Tamil country. The Strobilanthes, a shrub whose brilliant white flowers blossom for only a few days once every ten or twelve years.

NEITHAL

The seashore affords many examples of the compelling charm of Sangam poetry and the extraordinary freshness of its realism. From behind the conventional symbolization of waiting there emerges a picture of the life of the fisherfolk.
