Upcycling towards a playful tomorrow

Nostalgia, Narratives And Nuances In Brick

The basic building block of almost all architecture, the brick, has come a long way. From a humble element that is often painted and concealed in most homes to a marker of perfection, precision and many more attributes for those who choose to use them sans any finish. The Brick House by CollectiveProject is distinguished by its use of exposed-brickwork implemented within complex geometries. But if one looks beyond the first layer of the bricks; both physically and metaphorically; it reveals a context and narrative immersed in nostalgia and experimentation.

Beyond Worship - Tejorling Radiance, Pune, Maharashtra

Devising a temple in today’s times is challenging as temples and religions are no longer limited to personal one-to-one association with God. Perhaps that was never the case even in time immemorial. In the current politically-charged times and with the opportunity to create a dominant or impressive form in the formative years of its architectural practice, Karan Darda Architects steer clear of any political or personal influences while creating a Tejorling Radiance, a Shiva temple in Pune.

Maya Somaiya Library, Kopargaon, MaharashtraThe Maya Somaiya Library’s most captivating feature and function perhaps lie outside and above it. And it is not only the interesting feature and the form that captivates but also the opposing theories and arguments that the structure articulates through its design and construction. Arising from limited opportunities but expected to address multi-fold educational challenges, the library is a metaphor that establishes ideas, raises certain pertinent questions on the local-global conflict and raises the bar on how much more a building (and building-programme) can be, beyond the functions attributed to it.
