In this urbanizing world, we often tend to deviate from our roots of culture and heritage, the community we share, the place we call home. Culture and architecture are never perceived in isolation. Over the years cultural influences have molded the way spaces have been designed in India. One such example is the golden city of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. A city that looks golden, feels golden, and lives golden! Jaisalmer is the shimmering golden hue in the palette of colors that is Rajasthan. Located in the heart of Thar Desert, this remarkable city is the prime example of how culture and royalty have seeped into the vast corners of this state. Elaborating the expression of culture on the built form is usually the unconscious effort of every designer. Culture plays a dominant role at the very outset of any design process. The project proposal intends to develop a platform for artisans, and folks of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan to enhance their talent and give it the deserving importance. It aims at developing a campus offering production, experience, learning, and joy of the city of culture, Jaisalmer. It deals with finding out the suitable provisions mandatory for the upliftment of tourism, economy, talent, and city lifestyle such that it boosts the importance of culture and implant its seed for generations.
