Adaptive reuse of century-old home by Ar. Rahul Mehrotra| Applying art to education| Of spatial surprises and light art| and more


Dear IAnDians,

Good design is obvious, great design is transparent. The Chao hotel personifies this statement with optimum utilization and great design. Their unique approach in utilizing the heights and volumes, giving it a distinctive shape is something not many can think of.

Not many believe that lighting is an important aspect of design, but I believe that lighting can change the way you look at a space. Light should not interpret architecture; it must transform it. Light is the first element of design; without it there is no colour, form, or texture. Again, in the Chao Hotel they have used lighting brilliantly thus transforming the space into something else.

Art can bring alive bare walls and transform them into talking points. The hand stippled the art wall at the Dow Jones office exhibits artistic thinking with a political shade. In contrast to this the Cegep Marie School has a very direct approach to the design with a playful and imaginative style of rendering the walls.

Design and art in any form, used in the right manner can transform the way one looks at a space.
