Vinu Daniel completed his B. Arch in 2005 from The College of Engineering, Trivandrum, following which he worked with Auroville Earth Institute for the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) Post-Tsunami construction. On returning from Pondicherry in 2007 he started ‘Wallmakers‘ which was christened thus by others, as the first project was just a compound wall. With a practice, spanning over more than a decade, though we started with materials like mud blocks, we are currently learning to work with urban waste too – tyres, scrap, plastic bottles, debris, etc. At Wallmakers, the aim is to build sustainable spaces that are responsive to specific site contexts and conditions ,while maintaining a balance between innovative and utilitarian designs. We are an office-less firm that is constantly on the move, looking for ways to make construction more sustainable, as we believe that going green is no longer an option, but a compulsion for 21st-century humans where architecture is no longer a profession, but has become a hazard.
