Skyon in Gurgaon, India by Sorg Architects

In the early 1980’s the automotive company Maruti Suzuki catapulted Gurgaon from farming village to growing commercial sector, by locating large scale operations there. Lured by tax reforms and the proximity of Delhi International Airport, private firms and multi-national corporations began flocking to Gurgaon as the Indian markets opened up to global investment. One decade later the largely undeveloped land in Gurgaon appealed to developers as the need for a satellite city in Delhi’s expanding metropolitan area became increasingly apparent. Gurgaon has been nicknamed the ‘Millennium City’ and has seen an unparalleled period development that has significantly outpaced progress on infrastructure and municipal support structures.

Step tower in Osaka, Japan by EASTERN design office

A stark white ship that sails in the middle of the bustling sea of colors.

The ship floating on the ocean suddenly appears in a shopping center. It evokes a feeling not of a resort area, but of an exotic corner of a town in some southern country. A feeling of a ship that comes across this area by chance.
