Designed by ma architects, the ‘burlap house’ celebrates spaces of interaction and represents node of collaboration and socialization held together by individuals from different walks of life.


BURLAP HOUSE - m a architectsAmid Jaipur Art Summit in 2016, the ultimate goal of the convention was to showcase creative arts across multiple mediums and formats existing in India and to bring together artists to stimulate a cultural exchange, which forms the basis for inspiring new art production. In this context we built a structure to motivate communication between masses for exchange of ideas.

The ‘burlap house’ celebrates spaces of interaction and represents node of collaboration and socialization held together by individuals from different walks of life.

It is a public space intervention which goes for initiating outdoor activities of the local community at various levels by providing a space for social interaction and a platform to artists to work and showcase their ability.

Elevation

 

Various nodes are spread throughout the fabric of a city. They are an indispensible part of the social framework where individuals from all stages turn up for amusement, collaboration and exchange of ideas and experiences. Distinguished mannerism and shifting length of the fabric represents individuals from various fields and phases of life. The node in the centre illustrates the coming together of such people to meet and share thoughts.

Metal poles, taken from the scaffolding of the building industry, were used for creation of a pavilion that duplicates a construction site to provide the visitors and artists with a virtual constructive space, where on site execution in the form of art would take place. The pavilion in collaboration with ‘Tapri- The Tea House’, houses a cafe with an art gallery surrounding it, with canvases flanking both its sides.

The total area occupied by the installation is about 100m2 with a height of 9m. It follows a grid of 1.5m x 1.5m, hence providing ample space for movement in the art gallery. Size of the cafe is 6m x 6m.

Balaji temple at Andhra by Sameep Padora and Associates

Balaji Temple at Andhra Pradesh by Sameep Padora and Associates has achieved a very sophisticated level of abstraction: Praveen Bavadekar

The following critique for the Balaji Temple at Andhra Pradesh, an award-winning project designed by Sameep Padora and Associates, was shared by Praveen Bavadeker. Praveen Bavadekar is Principal at Third Space Studio.
The Balaji temple in Nandyal explores and abstracts the long tradition of the temple typology in India.

The architectural philosopher Andrew Benjamin wrote that every act of design was an act of repetition and that architecture is about exploring what not to repeat. This building too repeats or emulates certain tropes of the Hindu temple so that it is recognisable as a temple yet it doesn’t replicate those tropes but rather breaks them down to constituent parts to then again reconstruct it.
