A tribute to iconic built structures, and their architects
Gravitated towards structural and grid-like approach in architecture, a designer finds the same fundamentals in his craft
“As a graphic designer, what initially drew me to architecture was the grid-like approach and purity of forms found in buildings,” says Ojasvi Mohanty, a graphic designer working in a one of the leading advertising agencies. In the structural nature of architecture, Mohanty found concepts of typography—type-setting grids and canons—especially as defined by Jan Tschichold, a twentieth century German typographer and book designer. “To me architecture was almost a larger than life, 3-dimensional projection of grids and structure,” Mohanty says. As he delved deeper into the works of master architects, he admired the nuances of their architectural practice. Mohanty illustrated some of the most iconic buildings of the world, and their architects into posters that are works of arts in their own right. In fact, one of Mohanty’s poster work is housed in the permanent collection of the Lahti Poster Museum, Finland. Among the architects that he illustrated, are BV Doshi, one of modern India’s greatest architects and Le Corbusier, the architect of Chandigarh city.
