Rehabilitation architecture; contemporary Boathouse interiors; shoe designer Manolo Blahnik at Harrods & more


Life is about interaction. We thrive on communication - animated and otherwise; it is perhaps this innate need of an individual that takes cognizance of a designer/architect’s viewpoint in myriad ways, when he designs for the public realm, the intimacy of a home, a get-away, or even when he has to conjure up a point-of-sale narrative in the retail sector.

Interestingly, our compilation of features in this issue touch upon a spattering of nuanced interactions – when people and especially children are rehabilitated after a life-shattering earthquake; when a new building is principled in traditional practices; when a scenic get-away home communes with nature; when split levels create an enigmatic charisma... I can go on...

Enjoy the issue and we look forward to your feedback!

  "The content at India Art n Design is great. In my opinion, the images could be much much bigger; let's say one image entire length of the page, which also acts as a story break. The title can then come below… Yellow could be a nice accent colour or the Indian saffron orange instead of the indigo colour. A section for cutting-edge materials/construction techniques would be a nice addition.
