Cover Design: The cover
features a close-up of the
mandala diagram as drawn by
a group of architects including
Charles Correa, B V Doshi, Raj
Rewal, Laurie Baker, A P
Kanvinde and others to
inaugurate the Vistara
exhibition in Bombay in 1986.
As a key exhibition in the
history of post-independent
India, and much debated for its
positive and other influences
on the shape of ‘Indian
architecture’ — with the
diagram of the mandala
gaining a certain kind of
currency — this moment and
history is now captured on the
cover of an issue on Exhibitions
that focuses on architecture
and architects, and our culture
of the built environment.
