Education is one of the five principle activities of the Hecar Foundation, which seeks to focus public awareness on architecture, including heritage conservation and urban issues, through publications, talks, seminars, exhibitions and scholarships.

The Hecar Foundation is proud to announce the launch of its first book, Women In Architecture - 2000 Plus, documenting the dynamic work of women architects in South Asia. Twenty-six committed women architects from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and a representative each from Singapore and from Australia, speak about the ideas, emotions and beliefs that inspire their work.

Take a look at this book. No architect who wishes to be sensitive to current trends can afford to ignore it !

SILENT SENTINELS
- Traditional Architecture of Coorg 2005


The traditional buildings of Coorg, or Kodagu, are among the most striking cultural expressions of this distinctive region of South India. For centuries the belief systems, social bonds, and family rituals associated with these distinctive built forms ensured their preservation and the continuity of their place in the life of the community. These elaborate, handsomely built mud, stone, and timber structures served as physical testaments to the prosperity and well-being of Kodava families. This book has enjoyed wide academic circulation and is available in several bookshops in India and at reputed libraries worldwide. ISBN: 81-7525-679-6

VANISHING HOMES OF INDIA
- Release Date: Jan-2014


By T.S. NAGARAJAN


'In dreams begins responsibility.'
- W.B. Yeats

Few countries in the world offer architects such varied challenges as those of
South Asia. In the last few decades women architects have been responsible for
an enormous and diverse body of work,
which deserves wider recognition.
From low-income housing to large corporate and public buildings,
from urban planning to the restoration of heritage structures,
their creative solutions have entailed integrating the hi-tech
professional with the 'barefoot architect'.
Women In Architecture offers a cross-section of work from India,
Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, together with some
representation from Singapore and Australia, to demonstrate how
women architects are steering a course between the imperatives of a
global culture and their own countries' rich design traditions.
