Cover De­sign:

Domus - - CONTENTS -

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.
