Art installation that invites you to walk on water| Gaudi-inspired house on the cliff| Bookmark that becomes a reading light | Mobile living-pods that adapt to the tides | and more

                       

The euphoria of a creative accomplishment is unmatched! Millions of people are experiencing the extraordinary thrill of walking on water. The artist in Christo has realised his dream project of 46 years with the Floating Piers on Lake Iseo in northern Italy – a dream he dreamt with his late partner Jeanne-Claude.

Ar. Abhishek Ray’s design of the first gallery at the Kutch Textile Museum is a labour of love – a concept that has gone beyond the immediacy of the project to touch the lives of those sustaining the craft. Artisan portraiture is the biggest high in this gallery! Of course, as Abhishek says, it’s also “technologically the best, when it comes to conservation and lighting standards in the country for textiles and fabrics”.

On similar lines – check out the house on the cliff by GilBartolome Architecture, where again the architect goes on to use handcrafted refinements by engaging local labour and empowering a needy community in the bargain.

Frank Lloyd Wright must surely have had a very deep insight when he said, “The building as architecture is born out of the heart of man, permanent consort to the ground, comrade to the trees, true reflection of man in the realm of his own spirit”. Need I say any more?

Enjoy the issue.

Warmly,
