The description provided by the architects: The design of the architectural studios of Khosla associates and the graphic design studios of tsk design was a collaborative process between both studios. The constraints of a tight plot of land had us think primarily in terms of maximizing efficiency while still maintaining a feeling of openness and light.

The column-free floor plates on each of the 3 floors were worked around a shuttered concrete lift and staircase core. Additionally, each of the floors had peripheral upturn beams at sill level, allowing the windows to extend all the way to the roof slab. We gained a significant feeling of space and light with this simple move.

An exterior 2ft Wrap-around overhang shelters the windows from sun and rain on each level. We devised a system of wooden box jaali screens to protect the openable windows. The pattern of the jaali was derived from the whimsical “DashDashDot” series of Terrazzo tiles that Sandeep and Tania designed for Bharat Floorings, also used as an arresting vertical backdrop for the studio reception. The wooden jaalis provide for daylight filtering during the day, screen certain undesirable views, allow for cross ventilation, provide a layer of security to the building while providing playful patterns in the interior space through the day.

Spaces were carved into the building to foster creativity and to promote collaboration between the designers. The highlight feature is a lightweight powder blue steel and timber staircase which runs like a vertical spine through the triple-height volume of the studio. The dramatic volume is bathed through the day in natural light. The environmental graphics that climb vertically along one of the staircase walls were conceived to amplify and celebrate the staircase, making the landings, spaces for encounters, a spot to have a conversation, pause and continue your manic day.

The Eames crow was a point of influence and Tania’s starting point as she imagined it flying through Indian landscapes, perching on a cow or pecking on a marigold. Artist Jeeva put a wonderful team together who created these massive stencil cut outs on vinyl and then hand drew and painted on the slatted, concrete surfaces to a delightful effect.

The materiality of the studio is textural while staying fairly monochromatic. There is a combination of brick walls and Kerala roofing tiles painted white, form finished concrete, screed cement flooring and patterned terrazzo. Pops of colour in the environmental graphics and loose furniture as well as cabinetry in light oak add contrast and warmth to the pared-down shell. Particularly delightful is the graphic console unit at the reception entrance that was designed by Sandeep and Tania.

The studio is peppered with some mid-century furniture pieces picked up at a garage sale when a 1950’s Bangalore house was being demolished. These pieces were lovingly restored to their original condition. Adding to this were other customized pieces, eclectic accessories, and a plethora of samples and prototypes reflecting the sensibility and ethos of both the design studios.

The Museum of the Future is a unique incubator for futuristic innovations and design, currently under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Opening in 2020, the Museum will become the world’s largest and most exciting way to discover tomorrow’s trends and opportunities.

The museum’s motto, “See the future, create the future”, reflects a new approach to government innovation. Rather than just displaying exhibits or publishing reports, the new institution will use design, technology prototyping and foresight to create real examples of change. The Museum is the first of its kind and represents a leading example of entrepreneurial governments embracing change and creating futuristic visions for a better world.

Organized by the Dubai Future Foundation as part of the World Government Summit, the Museum focuses on shaping the future of robotics and artificial intelligence and their impact on human life. It also offers a unique interactive experience t…


strong portfolio is and always will be your greatest ally throughout your career. From the initial steps along the path, tong wards land your first role, to later on when you’re competing for high profile tender – it’s invaluable. Your portfolio should be unique and should stand out from the thousands of portfolio developers, clients, and potential employers see on a daily basis. It should be presented as a work of art in itself, and it’s equally important to not share all of your work, only some highlights. Leave them wanting more. Show versatility in design, but across only four or five different project designs. And of course, make sure it always contains your very best work. 2. NETWORK AND CONNECT
Architecture, much like any number of sectors or industries, is as much about establishing and maintaining relationships as it is about talent and creativity. Meet as many people as you can, stay in touch with all the contacts you make. Arrange lunches, send …

INSPIRATION:  LOTUS FLOWER Observing Hindu architecture, you can see that despite the external difference between the various temples, they all show meaningful and sacred symbols common to all of India’s religions. These are symbols which have emerged in other countries and religions. One of these symbols is the sacred flower of the Indians: the lotus flower.Fariborz Sahba developed the project for the temple inspired conceptually by this flower which symbolises purity and cleanliness in Hindu tradition.     DESIGN CHALLENGES: Generation of formEngineering ChallengeClimatic ChallengeBaha'i FaithFinancial restrictionGENERATION OF FORM
