Architectural ode to Kazi Nazrul Islam; ethnicity and modern decor; graphic architectural forms; fresh ideas from design students and more.


We speak of fresh ideas being path-breakers, monolithic linear masses endorsing a succinct architectural vocabulary; we relate comfortably to the now and then harmonising... so many elements, simple, complex, random, radical, clichéd... what is it that one finally looks for in building design? Just how vast is the subject? How far can the masters-that-be push the envelope? What works ultimately – the timeless or the just-initiated? Are there rules that govern tastes? Are there...? Will there be...? What about...? Our office is buzzing with rhetorics that create a buzz and give birth to new ideas. We are sure the same works with the creatives that get featured in our columns.

So, cheers to new thoughts, and old thoughts that rehash themselves to attune to the new! Indulge and share your insights with us at We are waiting to add on to our right brains!

  “India Art n Design is an interesting and well- curated design portal with a thoughtful and unique approach to their articles. Not only is it a great platform for designers to showcase their work and impart information, it also reaches out to people beyond the design realm. IAnD has showcased two of our projects and we loved the way they were described in an ingenious style like a story unfolding with a right mixture of photographs and text. The ezine is engaging and it showcases work both, local and international, being truly glocal. We are grateful to be associated with IAnD and thereby with such talented peers in the design community.”
