Cover Design:
The cover depicts a rendering of a mixeduse sky tower in Hampi, Karnataka, conceptualised by Somaya and Kalappa Consultants, in response to the brief of the exhibition ‘Connecting Lines’. The tower is fantasised as a majestic ‘Gopuram’ housing the various modern facilities which have roots buried in their traditional past. It is an amalgamation of new-age typology with the aesthetics of the old. The concept is based on a utopian culture where life followed a natural order and trade flourished while also maintaining its balance with social life.
