Monochromatic Heritage of Ahmedabad

Imagine a life without history. Visualise a time without past, nothing to cherish or to learn from, sounds scary right? Akruti Patel, who comes from an interior designing background was able to empathise to these thoughts, and thus, directed her skills of capturing the stillness and narrate the historically rich heritage of Ahmedabad city before it merges again into oblivion. The monochrome theme describes how Ahmedabad’s culture is growing beyond colours, cast and creed within its own pace, yet substantially remembering what it has gifted to its resident enveloped in bricks, walls and architectural marvels.

Patel has an architectural perspective while clicking every picture she performs different angles which don’t make the monuments colossal but picturesque. The city of Ahmedabad was announced as India’s first World Heritage City, and currently, the government is struggling to maintain the living heritage without being struck by the rapidly urbanising western part of Ahmedabad. ‘Monochromatic Heritage of Ahmedabad‘ is one such initiative of Akruti Patel, to save the breathtaking breathing architecture of Ahmedabad.
