A Model House

Uttara Chauhan


Uttara Chauhan grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada, before moving back to India. A postgraduate in urban and regional planning, she has worked on many projects with multilateral, government and private organisations. She was part of a small team that implemented an innovative slum improvement project, which was listed by the United Nations Center for Human Settlements under its Global Best Practices List. As a Special Correspondent for Indian Architecture & Builder, one of India's leading architectural publications, she wrote articles on major architectural projects, essays on urbanism, apart from a regular column on the theory and practice of architecture. Uttara has been on the Visiting Faculty at the School of Architecture in Ahmedabad, India, since 1992. She lives in Ahmedabad with her husband and son. A Model House is her first novel.

A Model House

Nanda, a young Indo-American in quest of her Indian roots. The diary of an unsung student leader of the 1974 Navnirman Movement. NGOs and the "game" of development. A bit of Nanda, loving and losing. Set in the small town of Mahatmanagar in Gujarat, Nanda's story moves through the red brick walls of the design school, ABCD, and its stiff rules and twisted vision; the gossipy corridors of Lakeview Apartments; a make-believe home with Raghu the model-maker; and the search for a perfect house beyond his models and her own moorings.
