The Digit by Anagram Architects

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Article source: Anagram Architects

The world of corporate marketing communication is all about grabbing eyeballs and our clients are one of the largest outdoor media companies in the country. Today, through outdoor or out-of-home (OOH) advertising, corporate brand identities are ubiquitous to the urban scape. An extremely potent form of communication, it relies heavily on high visual impact in  a fleetingly brief engagement.  Its clamorous visual language acts as an overlay or imprint on the urban built language. It intrepidly uses built volume and urban inserts to increase its visibility or to accent its messaging. Its contribution to urban culture ranges from adding to its chaotic visual cacophony to inspiring its street art.

Kindred House in India by Anagram Architects

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Article source: Anagram Architects

Kindred House was conceived as the residence for two brothers and their families.

Unlike a traditional Indian family which usually spans three or more generations with strict filial hierarchies, the clients in this project are kindred nuclear families. Therefore, the design called for multiple social spaces of overlapping territories and usage along with specific zones for each family unit and family member. It seeks to house an environment where the teenage cousins are together fostered by the four parents.

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Article source: ABF-lab

At the time when Seattle wonders what course to follow for a lasting transformation on public spaces, the [in]-closure project puts itself as the mainspring of the urban revival for the next five decades. Slow decision-making processes increased by fast practice changes and modern means of communication as globalized dematerialization implies that, nowadays, traditional urban planning methods are reaching the limit. You can plan an urban project; it will be obsolete even before seeing the light.
