Mumbai 2050, Make Design Matter & more...

Untitled Document

 

The last week started off with a rather puritanical yet honest appraisal of ‘Mumbai of the future’ as interpreted by the Origami workshop children at the Guggenheim Lab. But the message does come across loud and clear that we need to sit up and take charge of ourselves, our surroundings and our lives in general.


Ably reinforcing the thought and taking it further, I recommend David Carlson’s ‘Make Design Matter’ - a book that awakens you to introspective design thinking. And while we get involved with serious contemplations, our art aficionado, Dr. Alka Raghuvanshi gets nostalgic about block printed textiles, showing us a techno-driven path to revive the romance of the fabric.

Until next week...

Warmly,
