Stone Print Villa, at Utter Pradesh, by Sian Architects

Turning to stone at Stone – Print Villa, at Utter Pradesh, by Sian Architects

Flanked by the archaeological ruins of Vidura and Hastinapur and the idealistic ‘shiny’ urbanity of New Delhi, Meerut often finds itself in a ‘dilemma of identity’. Over time, the culture of the city, the notion of its inhabitants and the built environment has persistently deconstructed so much so that it has lost much of its contextual ‘evenness’. This traction between ‘nostalgia’ and ‘aspiration’ is especially visible in the old neighbourhoods or ‘mohallas’ of the city, which incidentally also becomes an active background for the vision behind Stone-Print Villa. – Sian Architects

Ashish Ganju and A.G.K. Menon on the problem with the architecture profession

Ashish Ganju and A.G.K. Menon on the problem with the architecture profession

The architectural profession has approached the crossroads in its development in
India, and the direction it now chooses will determine both its effectiveness in
serving society, and the validity of its future existence.
In this respect the profession must take the initiative in considering the relevant
factors concerning its future options, rather than have them forced upon it
through necessity or expediency. These factors have either been ignored or have
only been considered in a haphazard and piecemeal manner for too long and,
thus, they have had no perceptible impact on the profession to date. – Ashish Ganju, A.G.K. Menon

Tulum - Jungle Rooftop Restaurant, at Chandigarh, by Loop Design Studio

Tulum – Jungle Rooftop Restaurant, at Chandigarh, by Loop Design Studio

Tulum is an experimental paradox in the brutalist context of Chandigarh. It is a rooftop restaurant that offers panoramic views of the city skyline. Drawing its inspiration from the Mexican getaway destination by the same name, Tulum is curated as a superfluous, green and vernacular oasis. The design reflects a natural and an earthy undertone that comes together in a systematic fashion using natural stone, bamboo, terrazzo, wood, cane, plaster and greens. – Loop Design Studio
