Announcing: Folio

formfolio.in : A ThinkMatter Archive of Drawing…Over the years we have been fortunate to have encountered a rich and diverse array of drawings – representations that range from monochrome hand-made tracings to detailed axonometric views.

Folio is an attempt to create a digital archive and gallery to disseminate this very special aspect of the visual culture in architecture.

We invite contributions to this ongoing and ever-growing collection. Please share your drawings with us on: think@matter.co.in

Podcast on Audiogyan ft. Ruturaj Parikh

Episode abstract

1. What is Matter. ? Why do you think Archiving thought / documentation is important & required? Especially post Independence thought?
2. With so much noise, how do you decipher signal? How do you decide what to archive? What qualifies to be worth archiving?
3. What are your thoughts on “reflecting on your own work”?
4. As per my experience, very few professionals are reflective about their work; while academicians, authors & researchers have a more broader vision. Is it true and if yes, why?
5. Classic work always has a pull and need not be pushed. But it can take really long for people to understand the value. What keeps you going and doing this?
