Book Building belonging to Tara Books is a cultural venture beautifully designed by MOAD, where artists and their artistry take front seat within an atmosphere that allows crafts to bloom freely.
The blend of an extensive palate of colours, comprehensive graphics, and the intricate detailing at every nook and corner of the building narrates stories of life. The magnificent tree mural on the ground floor is the art work of the Gond artist, Bhaiju Shyam that exhibits individuality in an absolute way.
The careful detailing of the grills, commonly known as jallis adds to the design sensibilities of this space. Then there is perfectly curved spiral staircase which leads to the editorial and design section. An installation of a collage of grill patterns along the way is more than just eye pleasing.
Mahesh Radhakrishnan shares, The use of grills in a vernacular pattern allows for cultural continuity and helps the building to be seated in the local context, which is exactly what we were aiming for a context friendly building!
Furthermore MOAD identified each section with clarity, from the meeting and administrative area to the common facilities, like the yellow pantry and washrooms, each section has been outlined precisely to ensure no hindrance is caused in executing the day to day activities.
