The project aims to create defined places to enjoy the view, from an optimal lookout condition. An intention was also to create a conspicuous object, establishing an articulated division between nature and architecture.
‘Patterns in the FUTURISTIC ARCHITECTURE’ is based on my experiences and works with architecture students in Mumbai. I am impressed with their ability to transform ‘ideas’ into a tactile reality. Tangibility is a commendable quality of architecture in general. I have explored this aspect in my work.
Basic analysis of architectural forms from Modern to Contemporary would suggest that geometric shapes like cubes, triangles and spheres were formally explored. Today the architects are engaged with more complicated forms, one of which is the ’DNA – Spiral’ . Portraying various cross-over patterns of spirals is the main objective of this series.
Work Of Art: Whitney Museum of American Art by Marcel Breuer-
The Whitney was opened in 1966 and was designed whilst Breuer was at the height of his career. With its granite clad walls, its single window and its protruding overhang, the front of the Whitney is quite intimidating. Is is unlike any other building in it’s vicinity and very sculptural. The space was designed with minimal internal supports and windows so that it could be extremely flexible, changing as and when it needed to suit each exhibition. These pictures were taken by Architecture photographer Ezra Stoller.
