Learn to ‘wear-your-attitude’ with LFW |Who better than Arzan Khambatta to review scrap (book)!| Step wells inspire landscape design in Hyderabad and more

                       

Dear IAnDians,

Last week has been celebratory in many ways. With sensitivity as the core ingredient of good design, our stories have taken us on a wide jaunt from visiting Mumbai’s Lakme Fashion Week and its brood of young achievers to the Chintels Corporate Park in Gurgaon, where the architect has ingeniously brought in the outdoors with gardens at almost every level of the multi-storey building. Its stepped green tables are a welcome sight in the usually-seen, closed, box-like structures that dot the skyline.

German industrial designer, Carlos Schreib caught our attention with his walking stick-cum-restive-seat-at-will as a sensitised gesture towards the senior and infirm. His prototype awaits productinisation. After traipsing across Riga in Latvia admiring the modular facade of the strategically located wedge-shaped multi-purpose building, we were once again floored by how our heritage of step wells and water mazes has inspired Penda Architects; their landscaping for the Hyderabad residential block is simply outstanding and rightfully our trending story.

Last but never ever the least – Architect and sculptor Arzan Khambatta reviews the book Trashures - giving you his insights along with some gems on ‘Best from waste’.

Let’s leave you to it as we get busy with more intriguing design stuff coming up in our next issue.

Warmly
