In our 1969 Summer Institute, we had studied three contrasting living environments in Ahmedabad.
- a "cooperative housing society",
- un urban village of a community coming from western Gujarat,
- a "pole", the traditional single neighborhood pattern found in the city.
These three examples were structured around Patrick Geddes' Folk/Work/Place concept, i.e. people and their every day activities, in interaction with their immediate environments.
Bernard Kohn is at the origin of the idea for the film.
Mira Binford did all the actual filming.
The editing has been taken up and left aside, and now would need a unifying revision.
