SURFACES REPORTER is India's 1st and only Architecture and Interior Design magazine dedicated to products and materials.
 

Readers Views

Surfaces Reporter is filling a void in architectural journalism by focusing on products and materials in the form of a magazine as opposed to a catalogue. Introducing new materials that are available is important for young designers to be able to think of ideas and apply them in novel ways. We especially appreciate writing about sustainability: we need to focus more on the sustainable aspects of our designs rather than just adding on features; thinking about sustainable design today must be embedded in every project, just the way we think about lighting or spatial planning. This is a matter of urgency, and buildings in the future can be as timeless as our architectural heritage only if they are intentionally designed to be deeply in harmony with ecology rather than superficially. 

Ar. Takbir Fatima and Designer Abeer Fatima, DESIGNAWARE, Hyderabad

“Surfaces Reporter can play a leadership role by creating a platform that bridges between designers and product manufactures, by offering product launches through your networking platform. This would help the fraternity & the manufactures both to understand each other’s need & limitations/possibilities, respectively on a one-to-one basis.”

Ar. Lalita Tharani, Principal, Collaborative Architects, Mumbai

“Surfaces was launched in May 2011. In short span of time it has become a household magazine not only for Architects and Interior Designers but also people who do up their own houses without the help of professionals. The fact that they have established themselves as a seasoned magazine in a span of three years makes it a very creditable feat for Ms Vertica Dvivedi and her team. Credit goes to them for conceptualising SURFACES, to which they have done full justice. To further educate its viewership, the thought of Grand Collection Edition is an IDEA worth applauding and welcoming. I in person am in awe of their thoughtprocess and result oriented magazine. Wishing the TEAM of SURFACES REPORTER the very best for this year and years to come!”

 

Ar. Hoshedaar Eruch Carnac Creative Director, HEJC Architects Combine, Mumbai

SURFACES REPORTER MAGAZINE provides an informative insight to the young designers. The content is covers a range of materials products people and projects. Young Designers need to understand that good, clean and sensitive professional practice is extremely important for the benefit of the Design fraternity. We would like you to spot and feature young talent in smaller towns in order to reach out to those who work with lesser resources. The product features in the magazine are eye catching due to the full page format.

Ar. Sanjay Puri Sanjay Puri Architects, Mumbai

I see a niche that was not being fully covered by publications, which Surfaces Reporter takes a close look at. Keep up the good work!  For the readers of Surfaces Reporter, I would say for a publication that goes ‘below the surface’ to check things out, you are reading the right sort of publication. I hope it educates you on aspects relating to a home or commercial space that you might not have been focusing on. Reading isprofitable, especially when you get an insider’s view on how the industry works. Keep reading!

I think it's a wonderful magazine, it's comprehensive and detailed. I was just seeing the amount of coverage on National and international projects. It’s a wonderful format and its first time in India that somebody is dealing with material or surfaces skin of a building. We all talk about the concepts, the ideas, the philosophy behind it; but here you guys are trying to go down to the hardcore material palette and I think that’s a fantastic initiative at the end of the day.
