Sanz Serif, a makeshift nickname earned as a result of my typographic likes, is the umbrella under which I present the diverse facets of my work: academic research on architecture and urbanism, design speculations, graphic design, curatorial and editorial work, and writings developed individually or collaborately, in institutional settings or independently.

Current focus: Workscapes.

Batanagar in Domus [Publication]


"Unfolding a Modern Palimpsest", my article on Batanagar--the modernist Bata town built in the 1930's in Kolkata--available now in the April' 13 issue of Domus India. The text is illustrated with photos by Nouman Malik and myself. The text is included in the section "Contemporary museum for architecture in India", curated by Domus India's editor Kaiwan Mehta.

"The construction of Batanagar, the Bata town in India, helped to give a new scale to modernity. The streamlined ideals of Bata urbanism, its high modern utopia, transformed the region's existing systems of production and retail, while also engaging in community building and social change."

Contributors in the same issue include Pelin Tan, Suprio Bhattacharjee, Cybermohalla Ensemble, Ekta Idnany, Matthew Allen, Sam Jacob, Femke Bijlsma, Mustansir Dalvi, and James Bridle.
