1.ROOF VENTILATORS (AN ANCIENT TECHNIQUE)

Printing of drawing sheets is one of the toughest task for architecture students.On the way to the printing shop there are various ground structures in a row (they are commonly known as “wadishere.) Every time I crossed that path, remembered to ask house owners about that extra protruding thing on the roof.As i used to be in rush,it remained a question in my mind. 

 

 

Few days ago, I purposely visited the place and communicated with a lady residing there. 

After having a small talk with her,understood that they are for cross ventilation.Since the houses have a single window and its difficult for the air to circulate.Therefore, hot air bounces on the wall and is lifted up. For protection from rats and rodents, a jali is provide from outside.
