Architectural skins get a new dimension| The luxury of a chalet in an urban setting| The wine glass for your outdoor sojourns| Should climatically-sensitive architecture become a norm? And more

                       

Architecture and design have never stood alone! They result in and manifest multifarious overtures; layers of nuanced social, cultural, economic, political and scientific agenda inform and are informed by architecture. Our feature on the clinic D in Quebec for a dermatologist, makes one sit up and take note how the medical profession views space and space planning; how climate plays a very significant role in building design – DFI showcases this in their ongoing project, Gulf Adiba Business Complex in Gurgaon; the restaurant Fable throws light on how design plays on the psyche of people, especially in the hospitality sector; and the chalet in Madrid endorses how lifestyle changes and aspirations elevate status through design.

It is an ongoing, never-ending quest that drives us – the maker and the recipient (read designer and end user). I wonder is it a well-balanced equation, this research and enquiry on part of the designers and the avenue to put it to use on part of the user? Orproject is one design studio that we have followed since sometime and their enquiry into material, technique and technology is a driver for the future of design, as we increasingly inhabit a world powered by mechanisms and mechanisations.

But, under it all, look closely and you will see how the new stems are rooted; rooted in our ancestral tenets of architecture... in the tried and tested, the explored and experimented... Only the context is changing, therefore the application, the methodology and the aesthetic. The root is intact!

Warmly,
