Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
A revealling of India’s thriving architectural scene
Surveying over twenty examples of India’s finest contemporary residential architecture, this book offers exclusive, and often unprecedented, insight into private houses across the country built by an array of leading and up-and-coming architects, including Architecture Brio, Matharoo Associates, Abraham John Architects, Khosla Associates, the Pritzker Prize-winning B. V. Doshi and more.
The featured projects span the country, from the western coasts of Goa and Maharashtra and the inland waters of the Western Ghats, to inner-city havens in Ahmedabad and Mumbai and the banks of the river Ganges in the north.
Illustrated with photography by Edmund Sumner, and including architectural plans, the book also features introductory essays that explore India’s residential architecture in the context of the country’s varied landscapes and climates and historical influences.
