Design lessons on Teacher's Day – Beautiful Homes

Legends that have shaped architecture and design in this country have given every budding designer something to learn from. And that is why we are celebrating them today

As we celebrate Teacher's Day this year, we are looking to learn things that transcend classrooms and textbooks. Just as architects shape the world with their designs, teachers mold minds and futures with their guidance. Here we uncover the blueprints of inspiration imparted by the architectural marvels that have stood the test of time.

1. Laurie Baker

Known as the Gandhi of Architecture, Laurie Baker believed in combining low-cost materials and regional practices to craft organic buildings that blended seamlessly into the background. His prime goal was to make cheap and low-maintenance buildings without compromising on comfort and aesthetics.
