Cover: The central installation at the India Pavilion at Hannover Messe 2015, an artistic assemblage of info graphics and interactive installations that display information about the core sectors of the Indian economy, was the Trojan Lion. The Lion stands for strength, courage, tenacity and wisdom — values that are as Indian today as they have ever been. By adding a sense of forward movement and using manufacturing elements as graphic texture, this Make in India icon was born.

Sketch of the Brick House by iStudio Architecture which highlights the seamlessly fluid, organic nature of the design.
