Minimum 72square meters maximum 120 square meters Exposition “Warm Modernity, Indian Architecture Building Democracy” is a book that acquires three-dimensionality becoming the Exposition Design about the book itself, as an architectural and urban intellectual adventure. Warm Modernity tends to converge different design disciplines in a creative way: by pure research on contemporary issues concerning the origins and the history of Participatory Architecture, through the conception of a graphic design able to mark India’s identity in a globalized World, until the realization of an artistic and original photographic Survey. The Exposition concept is organized into three part. 1. Importing Modernity in a new post II world war National Sovereignty: Indian Tropical Constant, tipical of the Underdeveloped Countries, with a short biographical selection of five Modern Architects, who have theorized the harmony between the Garden City and the Siedlungen. _Essay by Maddalena d’Alfonso titled: The Indian Paradigm: definition of the modern tropical Landscape _Annex text by Paolo Brescia 2. Modernity as a tool for post-colonial Democracies: Three models of modern cities - capital, industrial - for refugees - with an original photo survey realized in 2015 by the landscape Italian Photographer Marco Introini. _Interview with Balkrishna Doshi and A.J. Krishna Menon _Text by Jacopo Galli 3. Worldwide consequences of the Warm Modernity.

The colour code used is characterized by a strong duotone of warm colours such as auburn and reds of the ground. They recall the typical ancient textile design colours. The Logotype is declined by an experimental typeface, that came from the assembled components of Gandhi’s glasses. The typographic code applies cuts and visual weights dynamically, by using a specific lettering in the texts. The infographic design, the outline of information and the mental maps diagrams are useful to transfer notions, historical memory and events far from the main stream of knowledge to common people. The resulting is a Visual Project and a Design Exposition that tell us about India, its imagery, signs and colours, together with a restitution of its version of a further Modernity bottom-up based, likewise globalized. ‘Warm Modernity, Indian Architecture Building Democracy’ is an innovative Visual Design Process declined in both, in the pages of the Book and in the Exhibition Design The Exposition Space is divided into 3 contemplative and study rooms and 2 information book paths.
