Where to Push and Gain The interiors-exteriors industry is developing fast. The glazed floors of tiles, marble or granite are becoming the choice for most homes, hotels and hospitals. The kitchens are going modular. Dishwashers and washing machines are arriving in hordes to the assistance of housewives.

Mulch like bark should find an increasing market as it can be used to cover the loam between plants and prevent the harsh sun from taking away the moisture from morning to evening.

The bathrooms have begun drawing much attention and with it special budgets. Families have switched to commodes from floor sit-downs. The predilection of bathing styles is shifting from buckets-baths to showers. Not only that, the water pours down in volumes not very common in earlier days. The way the trend is taking the industry it seems bath-tubs are likely to become the order of the day. Gardens are no more indulgences but they are turning to be integral intervals of the concrete whole. Though lawns from urban areas are disappearing like forests from rural areas there is no doubt that the fondness for the green is on the rise. Where space does not allow horizontal growth there is a

proliferation of green patches by potted plants and creepers. Amidst this greenery in homes are four

and two wheelers being well-scrubbed and washed. The more sensitive to a beautiful environment have to have clean means of transportation. Also the number of households with more than one vehicle is multiplying. It is a common morning sight to see matting being pulled out and given a shower. Nearly every major locality of big and small cities has at least one service centre to pressure-wash cars. In the case of bathroom showers those that provide a refreshing experience and yet do with little water will be welcome. Some companies have come out with a flow restrictor added to the shower. With the flow regulated it reduces water to about six litres a minute for optimum flow. In the garden the use of cans is likely to grow much more.

CFC to perk up Kashmir carpet industry on cards In a bid to reinvigora te the Kashmir carpet industry, the Indian Institute of Carpet Technolo gy (IICT) Srinagar is planning to establish a Common Facility Centre at BaghiAli-Mardan-Khan, Nowshara, here. "The CFC will comprise state-of-the-art carpet dyeing, washing and drying units, testing laboratory of international standard and a raw material bank," Director IICT, Srinagar, Zubair Ahmad told Greater Kashmir.

On Wednesday, the IICT organized an awareness programme to sensitize the stakeholders of carpet industry regarding the upgradation of facilities at the campus. The team sensitized the stakeholders on objectives of the project. "The aim of establishing the CFC and equipping it with latest technology is to improve the quality of carpet in Kashmir," they said. "Modern machinery is lacking in carpet industry of Kashmir. Once the new system is introduced, there would noticeable change in the quality and price realization," said another member. The programme was attended by President KCCI Abdul Hamid Punjabi, Ex-president Rouf Ahmad Punjabi, members of Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Meeras Carpet Wearers Industrial Cooperative Limited and Kashmir Carpet Cluster Development Organization.

EU timber policy to hit Andhra Pradesh toys, woodcraft industry

auctioned Red Sanders' wood that was seized from smugglers. The wood may not get buyers from EU as the wood is illegally obtained and not sustainable. EUTR is aimed at curbing sale of illegally harvested timber. This will keep track of the supply chain of timber and this would impact small and medium enterprises and exporters in India including AP.

The new stringent European Union Timber regulation (EUTR) will hit hard the exports of famous woodcrafts of the state, including Kondapally, Etikoppaka toys, wooden carving and wooden furniture. EU's new rules say buyers have to ensure due diligence on the origin of wood and on sustainable harvesting. The state government

T.R. Manoharan, Consultant of European Forest Institute and national representative of Forest Stewardship Council said, "The EUTR came into force on March 3 in 27 EU countries. The woodcrafters like Kondapally toy makers have to provide proper information on the origin of the wood and its sustainable harvesting to the buyers. They have to prove where they collected the wood and also identify the species. If they are not well prepared to answer the queries then there will be a problem for them in the market." Under the EUTR, placing illegally harvested timber and products derived from such timber on the EU market is prohibited. The regulation applies to wood and wood products being placed for the first time on the EU market.

Orange is the predominant accent color for the walls in this living /dining space.

Living-cum-Dining Inspiration Most city dwellers live in modest size apartments which don’t have enough room for an independent dining room. For those of you looking to accommodate these two rooms in a constrained space, this post should serve some inspiration. These visuals by conceptual designer Orlando Toro show excellent examples of spaces that integrate living with dining. Bright splashes of color and large graphic prints dominate most these spaces and they portray a less serious side of modern design with focal points that set a rich whimsical tone. This graphic accent wall is funky but not overpowering. 18

Jaw-droppingly Gorgeous Bathrooms That Combine Vintage With Modern

July - August 2013

These wonderful bathroom designs made us gasp! Irina Schastlivaya can make bathrooms look like works of art, simply by using patterns on tiles. The patterns are not too inyour-face and by that making the space appear even smaller and cluttered – they are unnoticable, at first, but add a whole new dimension to what would easily be a boring bathroom. She always slips one or two eye-catching details that make the space feel inviting. Golden handles or thin

golden tiles, ambient lighting cleverly distributed throughout the room that create a warm, inviting atmosphere... as if she knows just exactly what every bathroom should feel like! When it comes to combining vintage and modern, that’s a job that is quite tricky if you’re not a genuine professional. It can look abruptly put together, and even clashing. But it

seems to us that this designer passed yet another test – just look what she did with this warm, luxurious bathroom which combines modern furniture in a strong colour, with strong patterns and decors on the tiles and the glass doors. Who would say that halogen lights above the

mirror go so well with vintage patterns on these voluptuous red tiles? Now, with slightly bigger bathrooms, the designer gave herself room for over-doing it. Painting the pipes in a rich gold colour, choosing to clash warm toned tiles with cooler toned ones, or mixing patterns all over the place, we feel that when it comes to these designs, it becomes a question of taste. Some people may like the Moroccan feel of the blueish-cream bathroom, and some may find it to be too much. Para to some, marble is cold and slippery, hence impractical, and don’t think that it’s the best choice for a bathroom floor, but those who like luxury and a vintage feel in their bathrooms should enjoy these upcoming photographs. We find them very interesting and wonderful! Especially the ones, where she combines dark wood with different tiles.

SITTING AREAS of a clear narrative or focal point.

External Sitting Areas

The outdoor room is not a new concept. It is merely a new term given to that, which is created by the engaging medium of landscape architecture. However, it is the expression that best describes these projects from Rolling Stone Landscapes, which illustrate the versatility of external spaces and provide inspiration to be adopted by gardens wanting July - August 2013

The garden belonging to this leisurely modern home ambles as a continuation of its open plan living and dining area. It is a space within a space within a space. There exists a clearly defined, covered outdoor kitchen and food preparation area as an extension of the main structure, an additional outdoor dining setting built into the far garden wall, complete with minimally styled wooden bench and tamed over-hanging greenery, a glass paneled pool area and a spectacular sunken lounge. The sunken lounge really is the hero of this space. Equipped with in-built fireplace and attractive log storage the heavily textured, carved stone wall, together with manicured hedging serves to appropriately isolate the lounge from the greater garden. Soft furnishings in contrasting navy and white, compliment the slate of the wall and steps by which the lounge is accessed. A single coffee table is positioned in its centre and opposite the luxurious addition of a permanent icebox housing chilled champagne. Unlike the comparatively symmetrical and even natured space that came before it, this external living area heavily features a custom designed pool that mimics the flow of the house’s exterior. Following the lines of the space, the pool and garden beds lead to a white covered lounge with avocado accents, accessed by stepping platforms that rise out of the water and compliment the sedimentary look of the boundary wall. 25

The best recliner designs may be recliners that don’t look like recliners, like this chaise-style offering from Pansaonic Yasumi Relax Chairs. Contemporary colors help modernize the look, and this Venus chair from Fama not only looks the part, but boasts a relaxation mechanism that is operated without leverage, with a simple lean back movement. The Wink Chair by Toshiyuki Kita, is an extremely unusual easy chair, appearing as though it offers two headrests, but these two pieces cradle the head to heighten the relaxation factor. traditional armchair but look neater in compact proportions. The Gavin model and the Chloe are small recliners in comparison to most classic silhouettes on offer but maintain the highest level of comfort.

Como Shambhala Estate: Yet Another Stunning Bali Retreat It is not unusual to hear the phrase, “I need a holiday to recover from my holiday!� There are obviously many alternatives to a whirlwind tour that spans continents and takes in as many sights as possible, but the Como Shambhala Estate in Bali offers more than superficial rest and relaxation: it offers a very real opportunity to change a life. Assisted by a Yogi, Nutritionist and Ayurvedic Doctor, guests are invited to learn what it means to truly unwind and reconnect with their bodies through the use of a state-of-the-art gym and exploration of their stunning surroundings by means of various engaging outdoor activities.

STUNNING BALI RETREAT Wherever possible, the estate remains an example of traditional Indonesian architecture with its predominantly hardwood construction, breeze-capturing elevation, thatched roofing and open plan pavilion style interiors- often ornately carved in the famed Balinese fashion. As is also the Indonesian way, the estate is not one large construction but a series of buildings linked by tree-lined walkways and meandering stone steps, which in turn, grow out of and descend into the lush tropical landscape.

Thatching (usually made up of coconut or sugar palm leaves) and exposed beams are softened by a liberal use of white in both bedding and soft furnishings, and guests are romanced by the addition of mosquito netting which hangs in tandem with neutral window treatments in each of the suites.

Modern Japanese Kitchens


here’s something to be said about these Japanese kitchens - they are sleek, modern, captivating, and makes quite the dynamic statement. You cannot pin them to a particular mood or tone - they can be warm and cozy or cool and clean. But one popular idea most Japanese kitchens seem to subscribe to is to bring people together, to create a space that can be lived in - a space that incorporates cooking, eating, and relaxing all together. Essenti ally, a place one would enjoy spending a lot of time in with friends and family - laughing, sharing stories and recipes with, and enjoying the company of each other in a comfortable and inviting room. The designs from ToyoKitchen show all aspects of traditional design though in quite modern settings. Their designs include warm tones with wood flooring and cabinetry and also cooler tones with stainless steel countertops and appliances. One consistent theme you will notice is straight lines - from the cabinetry and flooring to the lighting and seating areas you will see a continuity of simple lines. It is the clean lines and minimalist approach that makes Japanese kitchen design stand out and keeps families cooking, eating, and loving every moment they spend in their beautifully designed rooms. 36

East meets West: An Exercise in Interior Adaptation This flawlessly executed selection of interiors may seem mysteriously miscellaneous. The collection of living, dining, bedroom and the odd office space, is clearly influenced by competing continental styles, such as Art Deco, Rococo, Versace and Renaissance, but they have more than one fundamental element in common. Obvious is the precision with which each of these interiors has been constructed, the perfect balance achieved within, and the harmony exuded by the individual spaces. Review of the interrelated concepts of precision and the even interchangeable: balance and harmony, reveals a clue as to their origin. The design philosophy central to all of these images is intrinsically linked to the culture that produced them.

The previous images reflect a definite Chinese tradition in their unmistakable oriental woodwork, ornately bordered tiles, architraves and skirting, the representation of deities, the presence of dynastic mementos, the creative incorporation of calligraphy and the use of floral silks. However, perusal of the images that follow sees a descent into increasingly classical styling, albeit, with an oriental twist. One may notice a Persian rug, a Fleur de Lys print, Italian marble tiles, a plastered ornamental ceiling, a preference for shaded chandeliers and a distinctly Art Deco mirror or lamp. Modern styles begin to feature also: heavy carpeting replacing woven mats and ceramic tiles, pendant light-boxes where lanterns once hung and sheer curtains in the place of bamboo blinds.

Vertical Gardens Vertical gardens have been part of the human narrative since 500 BC when King Nebuchadnezzar II built The Hanging Gardens of Babylon to cure the homesickness that ailed his wife, Amytis of Media. The therapeutic benefits of gardens and the practice of gardening have also enjoyed a long association with Eastern philosophy and today, are even recognized by the inner circle of Western medicine, but as the global population creeps past 7 billion, the space to garden comes at a premium.

GARDEN Indoor Residential Vertical Gardens The following images depict the home office of world-renowned botanist and Father of the vertical garden, Patrick Blanc. He is later pictured standing in the foreground of one of his most famous creations- the green wall of the European Parliament in Brussels. Blanc’s experience manifests in the production of large-scale garden installations. He credits his success to selecting only those species of plant which naturally grow in similar environments, such as rock and clifffaces. He introduces tropical species from places that inspired him in the infancy of his work and is careful to cover the lower sections of the piece with those that are moisture-loving, leaving the higher sections to those that relish sunlight and are less affected by seasonal change.

White Spaces with a Punch of Color The Micheli Residence in Florence, by Italian architect Simone Micheli, pops with an unusual palette. In exception of a rare feature wall, the large white space finds color from its furniture of carnation pink and sunshine yellow, with a current of neon green and electric blue running through it. Interesting textures break up the fresh expanses, and tease us with the history of the building, as the shell of this ultra modern interior has stood since 1800; we see the original walls still proud, unplastered and simply painted, causing fantastic contrast to the dynamic slickness of contemporary additions. The soft architectural shapes of the city residence are echoed with installations and accessories with rounded corners, and glossy surfaces smooth and reflect the bright lights. A mezzanine level oversees the open living area, where you might feel like a kid in a candy shop, sugared with marshmallow-like sofas and zingy citrus bars across the wall, which may prove a little too sweet on the tooth for some. A minimalistic white kitchen almost disappears into a white cove, maintaining an overall feeling of freedom and movement throughout the space, whilst backlit typographical elements adorn walls of bedrooms and a wetroom, adding personality to the places punch.

Inspiring Bedrooms for Boy and Girl in Modern Slovakian Crib

July - August 2013

BEDROOMS Slovakia is one of the east block's countries recently coming alive in terms of quality architecture & design. An inspiring project consisting of rooms for a 6 years old Star Wars fan and a 2 years old princess. The main wish of the parents was to create living spaces which would keep the kids attracted even when they grow older. Moreover, the father is a big gamer and Star Wars fan too, so he wanted his son to have this superb room to spend time and play PC games with him together. All the furniture is custom designed; the picture on the wall in the boy's room is real handwritten graffiti. The library was also tailored to fit into a fully furnished space, as the customer wanted to divide their kitchen from the living room area, while keeping the ability to watch over their kids.

Diverse and Creative Teen Bedroom Ideas by Eugene Zhdanov Need ideas on how to decorate a teen bedroom? Have a look through the portfolio of Russian designer Eugene Zhdanov, who came up with quite a few impressive ideas. The interiors showcased in this post are just concepts, but we find them a great source of inspiration nonetheless. Freshome also published two other articles you may find interesting, on room design ideas for teenage girls and on teenage boys bedrooms. As you can see, most of the rooms were created around a central theme, whether it is a color theme or one inspired by daily happenings. Some feature interesting urban elements (various posters, industrial details or decorating items), other have a charming traditional vibe. We were delighted to see that each of them displays something original and appealing to the discerning teenager.

July - August 2013

BEDROOMS Teenage girls room decorating ideas generally differ from those of boys. But while decorating a teenage girl's room you should remember to make it look like a princess abode, and remember that a teenage girl's room is her castle. So since you here we suppose that you are looking for fresh design ideas for pretentious and stylish teenage girls right? In this post we will try to give a hand. We went with some serious and sober interiors, but we also gave a shot to the familiar and very popular pink, orange and red arrangements. All of the rooms are practical, featuring working spaces, small bookcases or shelving systems for books and Cds and beautiful cabinets especially designed for teenage girls. Last but not least, we consider the mirror to be a mandatory item in any girl's bedroom, so in some of the photos below you will notice they have a special status. Even though not all the room design ideas have a particular theme, the decorating elements are very well interconnected creating interiors that are both functional and aesthetic.

Room Designs for Teenage Boys Designing a room for your teenage boy isn't as difficult as it seems. The key is knowing what his hobbies are and what he likes to do with his time. Involve your teen in the design process so you can come up with a cool design that you both can agree on. Even though it was not easy, we hope you will enjoy strolling through the photos. The color palette includes mostly black, blue and brown, but we found some pretty fresh boys' interiors that have more vivid colors as well. Most of the rooms have a distinctive "teenage boy" element such as a punching bag, a miniature or a plane, a gaming device and so on. We particularly enjoy the themed rooms, such as the military interior. Sometimes all you really need is a little inspiration and once you've found it, your teenage boy room project will quickly come together.

Original Children's Bedroom Design Showcasing Vibrant Colors and Textures We were recently sent photos and information about a colorful bedroom design, which we would love to share further. According to the designers at Neopolis, this children's bedroom was implemented for a young family and their small daughter (three years old). "There is just one kid in the family yet, but in the case of a second child (boy) the room is designed in neutral colors - white, ivory, bright wood. There are two big storage spaces in the interior: one big wardrobe for clothes and one big closed cupboard for toys. Beds are orientated in one line - head to head". The tables are all height-adjustable and there is a large open storage space for books right above them. The focal point of the room is an interesting light decorative object over the beds, in the shape of a tree. Circle decoration are used on some of the furniture items as well. The entire room displays fresh, bright colors, inspiring happy feelings.

3. A slightly gothic styled bedspread adds depth to this light, lace inspired room, filled with intricate home accessories. 4. If ornate headboards are a little heavy going for you, a silky quilted headboard can have a deluxe look too; this scheme keeps frills to the minimum with only a few flourishes on an overhead mirror, and the rest confined strictly to the feature wall covering and perfectly matching curtains.

Floating Beds John Huff, the inventor of the Floating Bed thought, "What would the ideal bed look like, feel like, and what benefits would it provide?" What features would make everyone really LOVE their bed.

After considering the special relaxation of a gentle rocking motion, which has been scientifically proven as beneficial to us, but ruling out the back bending, and unstable, poor solution that is the hammock, the waterbed and the four point hanging bed–all of which Huff deems as “simply not that good to sleep on, because their motion is all wrong”–the inventor realized that the key to the ideal bed was the Omni-Pendulum or “Floating” Motion. Though this bed is aesthetically kind of cool, it was not

Floral Arrangements You Could Try This Spring Flowers soften any room and make soft rooms positively dreamy, but they can also add unexpected dimensions to modern, even industrial spaces. Feminine selections are often reduced to a combination of, or a choice between: Lisianthus, Peonies, Roses, Dahlias or Tulips and being the most fashionable of the season, are the first to be featured.

Just as English Tea-Roses owe their name to the Motherland, long understood is the association of the Orchid, Lilly and Cherry Blossom with Oriental styling and the addition of a single one of these species to an Asian influenced room can solidify its theme.

Floral displays are as much about the choice of flower as they are about the choice of vessel. This can largely dictate whether the display will exude an antique or modern feel. The recycling of jars and bottles is not only good for the planet, but great for making a floral statement. Leaving the container, whatever it may be, in its original commercial state will work well in a modern industrial space, but if a vintage look is desired then a rustic paint job will give an old glass jar or bottle a new stylish purpose.

A curiosity such as this display of miniature succulents, gives a room an intellectual quality. Interior design, is at the moment, seeing a resurgence in styling worthy of a natural history museum. Specimens from the natural world are being encased in glass in the form of domes, cloches and antique display cases, making for intriguing interiors and stimulating conversation.

Foliage, in its various textural forms works well in minimalist and masculine spaces, as do other forms of greenery such as palm fronds, grasses and even branches, but be careful not to gloss over the still life appeal fruit and even vegetables, can have. In this same vein, pine cones are also a popular, however unlikely, styling tool in modern and natural spaces. Flowers, like many another decorative element, make their greatest impact on mass. Venturing into the back garden or leaning over window boxes to collect flowers takes preference over a trip to the florist as flowers have one of the highest mark-ups of all consumer products. Even a bunch from the local grocer can fetch a high price so deconstructing a single bunch and displaying it like these roses will have a big impact at a small cost.

IRRAD, Gurgaon This is the first office building in which the earth that came out from the basement excavation has been used as compressed stabilized earth block in the masonry of the building, and in making its landscape garden slopes. Another special feature of the building is the plants and trees that have been planted, selected by Mr. Fred Durr a bio-diversity conservationist, many of the trees planted are indigenous species that need protection and propagation. This is the first office building in gurgoan that is designed to minimize the ecological foot print and carbon dioxide emissions due to the type of material used. For instance wood is used instead of aluminum for doors and windows and the use of burnt brick is minimized. No imported stones are used. This gives about 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the kind of buildings that are generally prevalent today.

Luxury Villa in Qatar

When looking at this opulent, breathtaking Villa, visualized by architect Muhammad Taher, it is nearly inconceivable that it could be located in Qatar, the once poorest among all the Arab states. It stands as a testament to Qatar's now immense wealth and rise to be the richest among its fellow states. The Villa is accessed by way of the grand entry with its soaring domed ceiling and sensuously curving staircase. Just as in the entry, touches of gold can be found throughout the Villa on practically every surface conceivable. The richest of exotic woods and finest European fabrics grace each and every room. The Villa's fine art collections are vast as are the decorative wall friezes with their 76

The grand parlour presents itself in the most formal of ways yet it seems quite inviting and warm. It is filled with a treasure trove of period and contemporary furnishings covered in the finest fabrics and finishes. While the Villa’s lounge is luxuriously appointed it feels more causal than the other rooms with leather and suede club chairs, stone block walls and contemporary barstools. This view of the lounge recaptures some of the opulence found in the rest of the Villa. Period paintings in ornate gold frames are highlighted in decorative wall panels. July - August 2013

THE BLUE MOSQUE The Blue Mosque (Called Sultanahmet Camii in Turkish) is an historical mosque in Istanbul. The mosque is known as the Blue Mosque because of blue tiles surrounding the walls of interior design.Mosque was built between 1609 and 1616 years, during the rule of Ahmed I. just like many other mosques, it also comprises a tomb of the founder, a madrasa and a hospice.Besides still used as a mosque, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque has also become a popular tourist attraction in Istanbul. Besides being tourist attraction, it's also a active mosque, so it's closed to non worshippers for a half hour or so during the five daily prayers. Best way to see great architecture of the Blue Mosque is to approach it from the Hippodrome. (West side of the mosque) As if you are non-Muslim visitor, you also have to use same direction to enter the Mosque. The design of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque is the culmination of two centuries of both Ottoman mosque and Byzantine church developments. It incorporates some Byzantine elements of the neighboring Hagia Sophia with traditional Islamic architecture and is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period of Ottoman Empire. The architect has applied the ideas of his master Sinan, aiming for overwhelming size, majesty and splendour.

SHRINES Interior At Blue Mosque lower levels and at every pier, the interior of the mosque is lined with more than 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles, made at Iznik city (Nicaea) in more than fifty different tulip designs. The tiles at lower levels are traditional in design, while at gallery level their design becomes flamboyant with representing flowers, fruit and cypresses. More than 20,000 tiles were made under the supervision of the Iznik master potter Kasap Haci,and Baris Efendi from Avanos,Cappadocia. The price to be paid for each tile was fixed by the sultan's decree,due tile prices in general increased over time. Result is, the quality of the tiles used in the building decreased gradually. Their colours have faded and changed and the glazes have dulled. The tiles on the back balcony wall are restorated tiles from the harem in the Topkap Palace, when it was damaged by fire in 1574. The upper levels of the Mosque interior is dominated by blue paint. More than 200 stained glass windows with intricate designs admit natural light. On the chandeliers, ostrich eggs are found that where meant to avoid cobwebs inside the mosque by repelling spiders.The decorations including verses from the Quran, many of them made by Seyyid Kasim Gubari, regarded as the greatest calligrapher of his time. Para the floors are covered with carpets, which is donated by faithful people and are regularly replaced as they wear out. The many spacious windows confer a spacious impression. Each exedra of the Mosque has five windows, some of which are blind. Each semi dome has 14 windows and the central dome 28 windows(four of which are blind). The coloured glass for the windows was a gift from the Signoria of Venice to the sultan. Most of these coloured windows have been replaced by current modern versions with little or no artistic merit. The most important element of the Mosque interior is the mihrab, which is made of finely carved and sculptured marble, with a stalactite niche and a double inscriptive panel above it.Adjacent walls are sheathed in ceramic tiles. But due to many windows around it make it look less spectacular. To the right of the mihrab is the richly decorated minber, or pulpit, where the Imam stands when he is delivering his sermon at the time of noon prayer on Fridays or special holy days. The mosque has been specially designed so that even when it is at its most crowded, everyone in the mosque can see and hear the Imam. The royal kiosk is situated at the south-east corner comprises a platform, a loggia and two small retiring rooms. It gives access to the royal loge in the south east upper gallery of the Blue Mosque. These retiring rooms became the headquarters of the Grand Vizier during the suppression on the rebellious Janissary Corps in they year of 1826. The royal loge (called h체nk창r mahfil in Turkish) is supported by ten marble columns.

SHRINES gateway to the courtyard stands out architecturally from the its arcade. Its semi-dome has a fine stalactite structure, crowned by a small ribbed dome on a tall tholobate. A heavy iron chain hangs in the upper part of the court entrance on the western side of the Mosque. Only the sultan was allowed to enter the court of the Blue Mosque on horseback. The chain was put there, so that the sultan had to lower his head every time he enter the court in order not to get hit.It was done as a symbolic gesture, to ensure the humility of the ruler in the face of the divine. MINARETS The Sultan Ahmed Mosque is first one of the two mosques in Turkey that has six minarets.Second one is the Sabanc

The many lamps inside the Blue Mosque were once covered with gold and gems. Among the glass bowls each one could find ostrich eggs and crystal balls. All these decorations have been removed or pillaged for museums in Istanbul. The great tablets on the walls are inscribed with the names of the caliphs and verses from the Quran, originally by the great 17th century calligrapher Ametli Kasm Gubarm, but time by time they have frequently been restored. EXTERIOR The façade of the spacious forecourt was built in the same Mosque in Adana. When the number of minarets was revealed, the Sultan was criticized for being presumptuous, since this was the same minarets number as at the mosque of the Kaaba in Mecca.He overcame this problem by ordering a seventh minaret to be built at the Mecca mosque. Four minarets stand at the corners of the Blue Mosque. Each of these fluted, pencil-shaped minarets has three balconies (Called erefe) with stalactite corbels, while the two others at the end of the forecourt only have two balconies.Before the muezzin or prayer caller had to climb a narrow spiral staircase five times a day to announce the call to prayer. manner as the façade of the Sßleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul, except for the addition of the turrets on the corner domes.

Today, a public announce system is being used, and the call can be heard across the old part of the city, echoed by other mosques in the vicinity. Large crowds of both Turks and tourists gather at sunset in the park facing the mosque to hear the call to evening prayers, as the sun sets and the mosque is brilliantly illuminated by colored flood lights.

The Science of Living What is Vastu Vastu is an ancient Indian science of architecture and buildings which helps in making a congenial setting or a place to live and work in a most scientific way taking advantage of the benefitsbestowed by nature, its elements and energy fields for enhanced wealth, health, prosperity and happiness. Vastu Shastra unifies the science, art, astronomy and astrology, it can also be said as an ancient mystic science for designing and building. Vastu Shastra helps us to make our lives better and will secure from things going wrong. The Basics Vastu is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature and balance them with the man and the material. Vastu Shastra is creating a congenial settings or a place to live or work, in most scientific way taking advantages of the benefits bestowed by the five elements called "Paanchbhootas" of the nature thereby paving the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment. The world comprises of five basic elements, also known as the Paanchbhootas. They are Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. Out of the nine planets, our planet has life because of the presence of these five elements. , we shall have to take each one separately to appreciate their meaning, role, and workability in architecture. (1) EARTH (Bhumi): - Earth, the third planet in order from the sun, is a big magnet with North and South poles as centers of attractions. Its magnetic field and gravitational force has telling effects on everything on the Earth, living and non-living. It is tilted by about 23 ½ degrees at the meridian. It comprises of the land structure, landform, landscape, flora and fauna. It also establishes availability of local construction materials and their workability. In India, we worship our Bhumi and give her a place of our mother. (2) WATER (Jal): - This is represented by rain, river, sea and is July - August 2013

in the form of liquid, solid (ice) and gas (steam, cloud). It forms part of every plant and animal. Our blood is nothing but water withhemoglobin and oxygen. The habitat and physical life are where water is present. This is true for all life forms and eco-cultures. The type, form and pattern of life also greatly depend on relationship of earth and water. If we see our history, all the cultures had developed on the bank of any water bodies, so this shows the influence of the water on our life, since ages. (3) AIR (Vaayu): - As a life-supporting element, air is very powerful life source. Pure air with oxygen is good for brain and blood. Atmosphere of earth which is about 400 kms. , In depth, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon-di-oxide, Helium, other gases, dust particles, humidity and vapour in certain proportions. Human physical comfort values are directly and sensitively dependent on correct humidity, airflow, and temperature of air, air pressure, air composition and its content. In this aspect, air deals with the entire body surface through skin, blood system - through respiration. Air also represents the movement. (4) FIRE (Sun): - It represents light and heat without which the life will extinct. All the days and nights, seasons, energy, enthusiasm, passion, vigour is because of light and heat only. Sun is a source of mental energy too. Best minds evolve in a natural process where the sun was temperate. Not very hot, not very cold, just the right temperature of 24 degrees. The different zones with the variety of climate have distinctive culture and architecture. Sun has played an important role in development of visual qualities of architecture in terms of textures, colors and above all the expressions of vitality. (5) SPACE (Aakash): - All the above elements are skillfully engineers towards the creation of physically comfortable, emotionally pleasant, intellectually determinant, totally vibrant and blissfully satisfying spaces for human shelter and habitat. It is unending regions remote from the earth, in which not only our solar system but the entire galaxy exists. Its effective forces are light, heat, gravitational force and waves, magnetic field and others. 83

forest into the city and make it grow in every conceivable corner. This means starting to view buildings as exteriors. The new catch-phrase for planners is: "building exteriors". GROWING CITY - the events programme HIGH GREEN TECH SYMPOSIUM 2013 This symposium has been running since 2009. It provides an overview of current interactions between nature, agriculture and new building technologies. The event will present the latest technical and cultural developments by bringing together the leading names in architecture, landscaping, agriculture and design, and generating progress through synergy. This year the Symposium will be taking a closer look at hybridising plants, architecture and design. Speakers will include the French designer Alexis Tricoire and Italian anthropologist Matteo Meschiari, who is fostering a greater understanding of LMT (Landscape Mind Theory). Architecture is no longer new to merging green spaces into cityscapes by developing "high green technology", and now designers are using plants to further the concept of sustainability and well

City now puts design in the picture as well, with a selection from the Natural Design Exhibition, the world's first showcase of objects containing plants, and the 2013 Esploratorio exhibition focussing on landscape regeneration. GROWING CITY gives MADE expo an amazing opportunity to shine the spotlight on the gentle expansion of cities at a more natural pace, with room for plentiful greenery not only in parks and gardens but also by "hybridising" plants with architecture and design. Cities and gardens merge seamlessly, offering communities a natural space in which to enjoy life within boundaries that both defend and safeguard. This means going beyond the mere construction of green areas, and rather hybridising plants with architecture and design. For as long as people and plants occupy separate spaces, it will be impossible to make a true quantum leap - all we will be doing is creating nicer gardens. What we call "greenery" is in fact not only essential, but the proper surroundings for the human race, in which it has developed and thrived. Now the challenge is to bring the 86
