Magazine Description

In this issue

Domus India focuses on teaching and designing in its October issue, and the idea of forming a consciousness via the journey of engagement with architecture and the context of visuality. The 'container' we refer to in this issue is the Sir J J College of Architecture In Mumbai; an exquisite building that holds ideological references in its styling and ornamental motifs. The vast photo-documentation of the 'heritage mile' in Fort. In this context, we also look at the book, Art and Icon – a wonderful collection of essays over decades. One of India's most perceptive minds on architectural journeys, histories, and realities – architect Kamu Iyer – has narrated the story of his city of work and growth. We bring in this issue, an extract from one of the chapters of the book.The Karnal Medical Centre is a fine example of a building's struggle to establish an umbilical connection with the imagined modern past interpreted in brick, and form-making that alludes to a language that is modernist; playing with geometry, composition and light. On the other hand, the design of an urban bazaar in Delhi is about juxtaposition of myriad forms that, at one level, imagine a global aesthetics and on the other, wish to reference a locality. The school building in Bengaluru is another example of architecture’s search for a form-meaning, where the formal assumes playfulness as its most obvious motif; but hidden within this excuse-opportunity to be playful is the struggle to define an architectural language.
