Through the Artisan House project, Morphogenesis looks to revive and re-establish a patronage for traditional Indian artisanal skills. India is symbolized by the diversity of its art and culture, yet with the changing paradigm there is a great need to conserve these symbols that are under a growing threat of neglect. Craft, emergent from skill and handed-down traditions is inherent in Indian culture, and is strongly representative of the global understanding of luxury today- that of the hand-made, bespoke, one that speaks of its provenance. Additionally, luxury in this project is expressed through the dexterity and beauty of spatial configurations, lending the space an experiential quality through the incorporation of craft, material, method and design.Save this picture!© Jatinder MarwahaThe design exploits the terrain on which the project is located, to create two different levels that are instrumental in segregating functions. A large house intended to include a large extended family at times of celebration and festivity, the private spaces are placed in the earth-banked lower level, and the more public areas are designated to the upper level. In keeping with traditional Indian schema, the private living is organized around a central courtyard which contains a temple, imparting a spiritual omnipresence. A strong graphic language of striation is the organizing principle of the design, to retain scale within this very large volume. These bands translate into a series of vertical surfaces, with a different story unveiling in each volume subtended between two surfaces. What is unique about this house is that it’s hard to call anything a room when looking at the planning and philosophy behind the spaces. The house evokes luxury in its play with materiality and detail. There is stone craft in one zone, metal craft in another, textiles in the next. The strategy of banding allows for the use of distinct crafts and over 50 materials without impacting the architectural sensibility or destroying the cohesive narrative. The striated planes notionally extend themselves beyond the edges of the built form, into the landscape and planting. So one could well be within a very stone crafted zone that extends out into a rock garden which then leads into another zone with a sculpture relief on the wall, with further leads into a water garden. There are multiple sequential exposures and experiences for the senses, so in a way there is also a luxury of experiences that this project affords. The experience created is akin to unfolding of space after space in a museum.Save this picture!© Jatinder MarwahaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Edmund SumnerIn nutshell, this project accommodates a traditional Indian family, traditional living principles and traditional craft and materials, but at the same time it was conceived as an extremely contemporary and modern house. This house represents luxury that is redefined: the luxury of handcraft, luxury in terms of freedom with experimentation which the client allowed, and finally, the luxury of different experiences.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerProject gallerySee allShow lessSiam Discovery / NendoSelected ProjectsThe Kite / Architecture ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Projects Morphogenesis CopyAbout this officeMorphogenesisOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIndiaPublished on September 27, 2016Cite: “Artisan House / Morphogenesis” 27 Sep 2016.

Fresh attack on editor of satirical monthly

first_img News FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Follow the news on France Journalist Etienne Dutailly has been violently attacked for the second time in a few months. The increase in acts of intimidation against publications in New Caledonia is worrying. to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has expressed its indignation to political leaders in New Caledonia about a 13 February attack on Étienne Dutailly, founder and editor of the Nouméa satirical monthly Le Chien bleu, and its concern at the upsurge of intimidation of the media in the French overseas territory. “Dutailly has now been violently attacked for the second time in a few months, very probably because he is editor of a satirical publication,” said RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to them. “This is serious and the only attacks on satirical journalists we know of in recent years have occurred under authoritarian regimes. The increase in acts of intimidation against publications in New Caledonia in recent months is worrying. We ask you to condemn this behaviour and to personally take steps to prevent any new challenge to the freedom to inform in New Caledonia.” The letter was sent to the three members of the French parliament from New Caledonia – Pierre Frogier, a deputy and head of the territory’s local government, Jacques Lafleur, also a deputy and president of the southern provincial assembly, and Simon Loueckotte, a senator and president of the territory’s congress. RSF learns that Dutailly was violently attacked on 13 February by two strangers who entered his office pretending they wanted to speak to him about some news. They punched him and kicked him in the head, bruising him and breaking a tooth. He had reported in the February issue of Le Chien bleu that he had been frequently threatened in previous weeks. RSF notes he had been attacked by a stranger on 11 July last year. He had filed a complaint and said the attack was probably linked to his journalistic work. Since March 2001, Bruno Franceschi, managing editor of the Nouméa daily Les Nouvelles calédoniennes, and Marc Spisser, the paper’s editor-in-chief, have been regular targets of intimidation.
