Dear Igor Mello Diniz,
wellcome on this AHA Network. If you have some time to write some short notes,
I would like to know about your interests in regard to this topic.
Enclosed please find a text I had written for Birx's "Encyclopedia of Anthropology". I will also put it into the AHA-site. It gives a broader idea of what it is about.
With all my best wishes

Dear Igor Mello Diniz,

...this went fast! Just a remark: maybe best have a look at the videos. You will get a first impression that architectural antrhopology is really "anthropology" (maybe it sounds strange because "architecture" is an elite term contrasting the normal and common term 'building' mainly used for traditional 'buildings' whereas "architecture" is used for something like an orchestra where many 'musicians' contribute their 'instrumental melodies' to make the COMPONIST'S COMPOSITION and the DIRECTOR'S gymnastics produce a PALACE of sounds!
It is 4 o clock in the morning, gradually going to sleep...
Have a good time

Dear Igor Mello Diniz,

please excuse me, mainly for health reasons I have not been very active on my "Anthropology of Habitat and Architecture" page, but I hope I can do more in the following times. A little bit late but with my full intensity I wish you a happy and successful "TwoThousandAndTwelve" 365 times!!!
With warm greetings,
Nold Egenter

To  Igor Mello Diniz, member of ANTHROPOLOGY OF HABITAT AND ARCHITECTURE (AHA)


Dear friend,

this is a letter I sent to Manalee Nanavati, who wants to study Anthropology of Habitat and Architecture. Since it contains informations on some fieldwork in India I send it to all my friends of this "Anthropology of Habitat and Architecture" (AHA) Website. Please have a look at her new AHA website and at the photographs of fibrous signs and symbols made by architectural students of CEPT University* at Achmedabad, India.
* Center for Environmental Planning and Technology University

________________________

I have another website which was the first one with the title "IMPLOSION". The title page shows many graphic informations on the field (however the much too abstract title "Implosion" was a mistake!). But, in its "RESEARCH SERIES ONLINE" it contains many papers with various topics. The English is my translation, therefore not perfect. I will look for someone who corrects the english for publication. Some of these papers also got deformed because of changes in the representation of non-English umlaut-letters like ä, ü, ö,  in German or ç é, à, è, ô etc in French. To get to this website google 'negenter' and click 'IMPLOSION' or 'http://home.worldcom.ch/negenter/'. If you want, I can send you a CD of this first website. I also will put some papers into the AHA website.

So far the beginning. Maybe I have to add that India is a very important world region for this type of studies into the "Anthropology of Habitat and Architecture" because rural villages in India have preserved quite a lot of ritual traditions containing fibroconstructive signs and symbols in their centres. I add some photographs of rural cult festivals we have documented while travelling in traditional regions of India some years ago.

I will close this letter with an interview I had in India with architect H. Masud Taj. The discussion was published in the Indian Architect and Builder in Nov. 1994 p. 39-42
