Story behind Art District XIII

Conceived as a reconfigurable space for Art, with architectonic interventions, the Art District is an unimposing urban insert in Delhi’s upcoming cultural hub. As one approaches the gallery, a colorful effervescent screen comes into view.

Conceived as a reconfigurable space for Art, with architectonic interventions, the Art District is an unimposing urban insert in Delhi’s upcoming cultural hub. As one approaches the gallery, a colorful effervescent screen comes into view. Composed entirely of twisted metal flats placed at varying intervals, the screen announces an artistic presence on the street. Predominantly white and neon green, there are a few splashes of bold pink highlighting the brand colors, echoed in two bold lollipop signs that carry the name of the gallery. The partial transparency allows a glimpse of the interior space, which seems almost like an extension of the street outside, an illusion furthered by a single bold yellow line that starts outside the steps and leads one inwards into the space. Also visible from outside is the stark furniture in the reception space, consisting of a few carefully selected pieces in bold colors, emphasizing and encouraging the inherent voyeuristic nature of the process of looking in to a private space from the street.
