I support > Spade – Vol. 2
SPADE is a biannual journal that deliberates on architecture and design in India. Vol 1 was a treat to read as well as to look at. An absorbing, thought-provoking set of articles, extremely well-typeset, well-photographed. Written and put together by professionals in the field of architecture and design, this peer-driven journal has been so far made it to Vol. 2 thanks to the tenacity and sheer will of the editors and contributers. It features no ads and receives no external funding. And needless to say, requires all the support it can get. SPADE intends to persevere at being an egalitarian voice of the discerning architectural community in India. Journals such as these are precious in their intent and integrity – I urge you all to heartily support SPADE.
Vol. 2: Of Architecture and Reincarnation
“The idea of reincarnation is inexplicably linked with the idea of death. One cannot exist without the other. How does one examine this idea in the process of civilization and mankind? Do civilizations really die or through their ideas stay alive?”
