Oxford Library renovation; Dynamics of Architectural Form; Community & Building Design & more


Building design and the dynamics of architectural form - whether green, climatically oriented, form-based, iconic or simply timeless, tends to feed the intellect like chicken soup for the soul. Working on last week’s issue, our team has been overwhelmed with the drama involved in the play of volume, light and form as they define, describe and decode the simple and complex vocabulary of architecture and design.

So we take you through the hilltops of Solan in Himachal Pradesh to Buenos Aires, the north of Utrecht in Netherlands to Mumbai with the highlight being a visit to the legendary Oxford Library. We hope you enjoy the read.
