DESIGN RATIONALE

Continuing with the concept of evolution of human beings into hybrid humans,a race superior to any ever existed on the earth. The inspiration for this project is a step further into the glorious future and a few steps back into an equally glorious past. The project starts with a story of a couple from the year 2253.A man named Hendrik and his wife Shabana.Hendrik is a visionary Architect who is deeply in love with his wife .The story turns around when they find out that Shabana is suffering from a disease unknown to mankind. She fights but ultimately she succumbs to disease and passes away. Hendrik is devastated by the death of his loving wife . Hendrik , one day decides to take undertake a journey in to the past to the time when the Mughals ruled the Indian subcontinent . He goes back in time and retells his story about his wife to the King who himself was mourning for his beloved wife. Hendrik proposes to the King to let him design the Taj Mahal in the memory of his wife and the Kings.The Sad king moved by his story agrees and let Hendrik take charge. Hendrik Design the Taj taking inspiration from his own futuristic buildings and the rich Islamic Architecture. So the inspiration of the project is a fusion of the Indo Islamic architecture and futuristic Architecture. In this project I have blended to totally opposite yet very similar styles to create shapes which are futuristic and new but used materials like marble etc. keeping true to the Islamic architectural style. The two styles are different in a way they use different materials due to the vast time gap but they are similar in terms of aesthetics and the minimalistic and clean lines. I have used shapes and new materials from the futuristic architecture and have used elements like caligraphy ,perforations from the Islamic architecture I decided to go with two colours majorly which kept on appearing in my research ie White and silver. Having said that I have used a wide variety of materials with different textures and finished which fills up for the lack of other colours. I have used materials like Gloss finished Acrylic,metallic silver mirrors,transparent PVC,Matt white and and transparent PVC tapes. For the uppers I have used Patents, Glossy Kid,Veg tanned leather in case of moulding,silver goat,acrylic and nude kid for lining. Nickel finish Sam-brown and metallic zippers have been used as fastening. For the sole and heels I have use marble as heels and platforms and in some shoes I have use acrylic heels with the brand name on it ,engraved or cut out using the laser cutting machine. All the socks are digitally printed with the brand name and Arabic calligraphy. The shoes are chic, futuristic and avant garde in some cases.


The Story The year 2253 AD, humans have evolved beyond imagination into Hybrid Humans.The world is free from global warming,terrorism ,religions and regionalism. Despite many efforts one thing that Humans have not gained is immortality . Humans still are a mortal species. In a land so beautiful that even the gods would want to lived ,lived a man by the name of Hendrik a visionary architect with his loving wife Shabana. Shabana had been fighting a long lost battle to the disease unknown to mankind. One morning Shabana passes away quietly in her sleep. Hendrik devastated by the death of his wife isolates himself from the life and people around him . Looking at the condition of her mortal husband ,the immortal soul of Shabana appears before her husband .Shabana begs him to get back into the life he had and start a new beginning,but Hendrik did not care for anything now. The person he lived for was dead,his purpose of life was death. He was numb. The Soul of Shabana visited him again and again to make him believe that there is a life beyond. Her efforts were in vain,then one day the soul of Shabana came to visit Hendrik for the last time,they talked and talked about their past lives,how they fell in love with each other,the places they visited together .Morning turned into afternoon,afternoon to night. It was time for the Shabana to leave him forever and for good. Hendrik stopped her and asked 'My darling wife if you wished you could do one thing what would it be?' Shabana replied 'I Desire no such thing,although I wish I could have loved you more and made you happier' .With these last words Shabana dissapeared into the thin air. Hendrik knew it was the love that matter,nothing else. He was moved so much by the words of Shabana's that he decides to take on a journey ,a journey that would change his life forever. Hendrik decides to do something for his beloved wife. He decides to go back In time to the land of Mystics and Mughals .He travels back in time to meet the great King who made the beautiful Taj Mahal in the memory of his beloved wife and proposes to let him design the Taj Mahal. The Sad king moved by the story of Hendrik agrees to let Hendrik design the Taj Mahal. Now Henrik and the king both had a purpose in life , to honour the memory of their wives. It took Taj 33 years to complete. Hendrik never went back to the future and decided to live in the India for the rest of his life. Days ,months and years passed. On the eve of Diwali the immortal soul of Hendrink left his mortal body. His immortal soul travelled through space and time to reunite with the soul of Shabana.
