Return to Roots: A journey through the spaces of Architect Ramesh J Tharakan

Architect Ramesh J Tharakan is one of the most accomplished designers in the country. After graduating from the School of Planning & Architecture, New Delhi in the early 70’s he chose to return to his native place and set up his practice, in the process, taking the lead role in the evolution of a TROPICAL MODERN Kerala architecture, through his collaborative practice of design in the firm Design Combine.

This year he turned 70 and this documentary is a tribute by his proteges, that takes one on a journey through his “spaces”- that which shaped him -his household and schools… that which he created for his clients… that which he shared- with his juniors and associates in his practice and …that he carved for himself in the history of modern Indian architecture..

This is our Guru Dakshina…
