The Vimal Jain Foundation and the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore are organising a 5 day workshop from August 11th to 15th, 2015. The workshop is being conducted by Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury, both accomplished teachers, practitioners and Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medal recipients. Both of them have also been involved in the Glenn Murcutt MasterClass (http://www.ozetecture.org/masterclass/glenn-murcutt-master-class/) since its inception in 2000.Dr. B.V. Doshi will join the Workshop on the last two days for the final reviews and public lectures.

The Bangalore Worskhop

For the 2015 workshop, participants will be invited to study the edges of the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore and suggest ways in which to negotiate the chaotic urban environment on the street with the serene quality of the campus. The aim is to attempt a bridge both physically (through architectural and programmatic ideas) and metaphorically between these two contrasting conditions. Though known internationally as a premier academic institution, IIMB is isolated from its immediate context and offers no opportunity for a dialogue. It is the hope that through the workshop one begins to find a way to have the Institute engage with the city and vice versa. This also offers a real opportunity to address the challenges posed by rapid urbanization and commercialism – how these edges are treated will hopefully offer clues for how ‘quality’ and public space could find its way back into our streetscapes.
The workshop is open to students and practitioners. You can visit www.vimaljainfoundation.org for more details. Do spread the word and feel free to reach out to me should you have any questions.

Publicis India Office, Mumbai, by Shiraz Jamali Architects

The old office of Publicis was located at Todi mills compound in Lower Parel. They occupied four floors of a commercial office building with each floor dedicated to one company of the Publicis Groupe. The design of the office was very formal, uninspiring and did not represent the kind of company they are nor the kind of outstanding work they do. Spaces packed with work stations and large partitions without any break-out spaces or discussion areas did not seem conducive for collaborative and team work. – Shiraz Jamali Architects

The ‘EDGE’ at Nashik, Maharashtra, by Origin Architects

Half an acre of the plot had a considerable gradient across its length from W-E. The stone house is a humble 1200sq.ft pitched roof vacation home for the Somaiya family designed on the highest plateau of the site to capture the panoramic view of the varying nuances of nature. This is a single-story house approached by a meandering stair flight flanked by tropical plants on either side, framed within a stone portal. -Origin Architects

Overlapping Volumes, at Hyderabad, by Urban Zen

If one could define this state-of-the-art project by Urban Zen, magnum opus is the only definition for  it. Sprawling over 22,000 sq. ft., this home built for a very special client who is just 32, is a celebration of his astounding success. It is a culmination of his accomplishments and a well-deserved ode to his triumph against all odds. – Urban Zen
