The World University of Design (WUD) School of Architecture organized a visit to a Rabari tribal community to better understand its existence’s varied facets.
Understanding the culture and background of their customers is a critical skill for architects to acquire and maintain. For the Bachelor of Architecture students, the field trip was a positive step in the right direction (BArch).

Shaleen Sharma, dean of the School of Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, said that “spontaneous settlements are a component of the curriculum.” “In the past, we have brought our pupils to communities in Dholavira, McLeod Ganj, and other locations to learn about their cultures. Because of the epidemic, we have not organized these visits for the previous two years, which is regrettable. Students instead visited the Rabari settlement near the campus to learn about their way of life.”

The Rabari are an indigenous nomadic tribe that wanders throughout northern and western India searching for food. Throughout history, groups of people belonging to the Rabari tribe have been traveling through Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab, and Haryana with their herds of camels, sheep, and cows, and they have done so for hundreds of years.
“It seemed as if we had entered a new dimension. From the time they sleep to the time they eat, people lead completely different lifestyles than we do. Dipsy, a second-year BArch student at WUD, explains how they have developed strong bonds with their cattle and even know the names of each of the 150-200 cows they have.
