Project Title


Madhav Raman
Malakpur village, India is a folk wrestling hub and home to champions who have progressed from dangals (local tournaments) to national & international acclaim. The community seeks a modern akhara for wrestling and kabaddi on mats, while hosting tournaments and drawings sponsorships and attention from professional leagues. Earthmade Gymnasium aims to manage the transition from soil to mats and preserving the traditional relationships of the pehalwan to the akhara while empowering the skills of building rammed earth walls and bamboo-reinforced concrete to replicate akharas and rekindling connections with their land. The use of locally available soil for rammed earth construction makes the execution of the intervention feasible for the local community. The choice of extremely localized & contextual building materials, along with evolved passive design for thermal comfort and illumination, seeks to pave way for ecologically conscious construction in a rapidly urbanizing region.
