Design and narrative have always been deeply intertwined. While storytelling is about the construction of a story by setting up a timeline of events, design is based on the construction of a physical narration by organizing spatial relationships. A narrative-driven design, is the practice of embedding concepts within narrative structures that are as integral to the design, as the design itself. Spatial environments ‘tella story’ in a three-dimensional space. The use of narrative techniques and immersive storytelling to create valuable experiences between designers and users is thus important for designers. Storytelling, as buildings, has always been a carrier of ideas and thoughts that were the result of this comprehension, evoking emotions.
Nestled on the banks of the Chaliyar River is Beypore, a land steeped in histories of the traditional boat building industry of Kerala. The handcrafted Uru was a topic of documentation for semester 2.The art and science of making these ships is as interesting as it is un documented and visitors to the ship building yard at Beypore area we struck at the passion with which each man works and the magnitude.
