The rise of an under privilege almost after more than 200 years of independence history is mockery of most forward, democratic & supposed to be civilized nation. I am really amazed & shocked by the frenzied Indians all around, as if their daughters married to the hero of MB straight out of new princely state. The face books are flooded with messages like “wow I can’t believe that it, at last its reality”. The news papers, media carried out the most hilarious story almost in a manner of Hindi cinema, like rise of new hero.

I am not against or biased on any rise or fall of such political events. However, the most capitalist country, which behaves like corporate whose CEO in disguise of president has change, what in the world has to do with India or us going crazy. American constitution has laid out their foreign policy way back in Lincoln era, which is not expected to be altered by slightest margin. Unlike America, India has given four presidents from so called minority, one from really underprivileged section of society, one scientist & one woman president & prime minister. I have never come across someone yelling from down under that “wow, I can’t believe that, at lasts its reality”, or an American rising & flooding the facebook proclaiming in similar fashion that “wow I cannot believe that, at last its reality” to our new president happens to be woman. The current Indian PM is perhaps the most educated PM across the globe, I need someone (at least media) to get up and announce that with pride & privilege as against the aligned their thought & energy to some event which happens across the ocean.

The sinuous forms, non-structured or non euclidean geometry are encapsulating minds and thoughts into unidirectional understanding of architecture as form making process. Having said that the argument of Aesthetic or delight is not only re-created but formally put in to the realm of hedonism. The architecture has never been so polemic at any stage of its evolution. The only reliable source of justification of  the emergence of such architecture is the way cultural ingredient that are induced universally, uniformly and unequivocally across the globe through in-numerous mediums amounting into forced reality.

The sterile or dogmatic ideas are slowly giving away to kinetic notion of architecture, the purity …


The recent publication of book titled " City Riffs" by Richard Plunz ( Columbia University, GSAPP) is based on urbanism discourse (dialogue) in relation to place and ecology. The preface by Kenneth Frampton argues the production of urban knowledge in neo-liberal economy results in aporetic question on limits and scope in the field of urban study. He brings about three important and critical discourses by Christopher Alexander on low rise, high density model, E.J Mishan work on "The Cost of Economic Growth" and Plunz work on "CIty Riffs" demonstrating the linear process of indictment of urban transformation towards maldistribution of resources.
The book brings the analogy of place and ecology, which needs in-depth understanding as both shares concept of place and space. His argument on place based centrality to urban discourse which perhaps has not been dissected theoretically enough as compare to environmental science. He argues further that how biological…
