Building heritage in Ladakh&Tibet



This exhibition displays the work of two architects, Min and Yun, as volunteers for Tibetan Heritage Fund. Their inspiration is drawn from Tibet in China and Ladakh,in North India, where the artists worked on projects to preserve indigenous architectures and artifacts - this exhibition looks to reflect on their experience and memories of these projects, as well as to express thanks to those they met who value and seek to preserve local customs and traditions in their everyday work and life.
