One to One [1] was the largest work at the International Exhibition at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale [2]. A full-scale rebuild of part of Anupama Kundoo [3]’s Wall House, it extended Dr. Kundoo’s experimental work on sustainable living and tested how local craft traditions can be reinterpreted in new architectural contexts. One to One was built by a cross-cultural team, which included a team from the University of Queensland [4], Indian craftspeople and Italian builders.
