Cover Design:
The cover depicts a rendering of the complex of the Jang-e-Azadi Memorial and Museum in Kartarpur, Punjab, designed by New Delhi-based Raj Rewal Associates, and completed this year. The zooming into a part of the rendering focuses on three key aspects of this structure and its sprawling campus - firstly the material, that is white marble, occupies the maximum space in the frame; the second is the structural system which creates a clear organisation of thick and bold lines articulating the rectangular frame of the cover; and thirdly, and most importantly, it is the people - the people who will bring life into architecture, especially at a complex such as the Jang-e-Azadi, which is specifically designed to connect the present and future generations to memory and history.
