Is an all-neutral palette the new interior trend? How do ‘big’ structures affect us? Can professional success map career guidance? And more. Find out.


‘Largest’, ‘biggest’, ‘most luxurious’ are superlatives that qualify not merely a structure, but an experience, a cultural shift with an impacting resonance that becomes a way of life. The largest library in Scandinavia is a polygonal building flattering its waterfront; Bangkok’s most luxurious mall aimed at being a world-class entertainment, shopping and dining destination rests on a helical floor plate. What is more intriguing – more culturally impacting - the architectural vocabularies of these places or the sheer size of their aesthetic and functional footprint? What brings on the mind, and consequent lifestyle shift?

I would say it’s the architect/ designer’s narrative that weaves a brick-and-mortar edifice and breathes into it the soul of his sensitivity. Just like the large structures hold us in awe with their sheer scale and treatment, good small scale projects too tend to do the same. Just like Ar. Lessard has turned simple fish-selling into a literary experience or the way Chevallier Architectes have poetically chiselled chalet DAG amid snow-clad peaks. It is the cumulative of varied elements – built form, unspoken ethos... that make the final call!

While you rejoice in a diverse design language, I invite you to also ponder on fashion stylist Nikhil Mansata’s musings on a career as a stylist!

Enjoy the issue and tell us what you liked about it!
