2015’s ALU-award winner; iconic architecture - ribbon chapel; social dimension of architecture; auto rickshaw as the social mascot; light as key design feature & more...

                       

Meeting Ar. Steven Holl and listening to the simple elucidation of his architectural philosophy was an intellectually stimulating experience at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum Plaza in Mumbai, last evening. With the American architect and watercolourist animatedly talking about the essence of Urbanism, it seemed a natural to want to believe in his vision of integrating culture, landscape, art... context in architecture.

While we continue to rejoice in the built form, and take pride in bringing to you a diverse skill-set, Ar. Steven Holl’s discourse certainly introspected a re-look at the our surroundings, our buildings, our environment, our perceptions of these and more...

Check out our stories this week – a second home fashioned after a piano; lighting as the key design feature; the ubiquitous auto rickshaw as the social mascot... Standing out amongst them are the 2015 Aluminium Award winner – Campus Kolding by Henning Larsen Architects; and the Ribbon Chapel by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Architects.

Enjoy your read
Warmly,
