Community centre at Nizamabad, Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh

Category: Community Facility

A small community of potter’s who practice black pottery reside at Nizamabad, a small town in Azamgarh District situated on the banks of river Tamsa. Though, very skillful, they are giving up their traditional craft as their products do not fetch good price because of lack of exposure, amenities, changing traditions and impact of modernity that make them realize they cannot make a living out of it. This in turn has brought the languishing craft of the potters on the verge of extinction. This project endeavours to revive the traditional art by means of architecture.
