This makes the structures dignified, resolved, and authentic.
Juxtaposition of rational spaces and geometrical forms, involving conventional techniques and building material are brought to a comfort level for contemporary lifestyle. The inspirations taken from nature, makes his structures stand out in the surroundings like a flower, not necessarily merging in it. Climate responsive logic, beauty and dignity, truthfulness are the lessons he learnt from the nature. Drawing caricatures and cartoons is also a source of inspiration for his architectural thinking.
For climate based issues, Ravi Gadre often thinks of vernacular architecture that proved its efficiency in the past with the intelligent use of available building materials and techniques. The effective transformation of traditional aspects and values, in essence, in the spaces created, are physically as well as psychologically comfortable. His structures are easy to use may be complex to look. They are user and viewer friendly, responsive to climate with unconventional combination of contemporary conventional materials and technique with economy.
