Our local partners partners in India, the Center for Heritage Conservation CEPT Research and Development Foundation; and the Hunnarshala Foundation have done an amazing engaging fieldwork in Bela, Gujarat. They documented this settlement using a Faro 3D laser scanner, photographs and drone footage, plus a series of questionnaires and interviews to the inhabitants about their dwellings and previous reconstruction processes after earthquakes.
