Launch of CAUI Booklets I & II

May 13th, 2014



Join us this Sunday for Creative Hub member, Lydia Xynogala’s, book launch.

Four Seafaces charts the spatial conditions of contemporary Mumbai, probing the interaction between formal patterns and cultural and social practices.

A series of photos complements the drawings, depicting the diversity of positions in which bodies sit, stand or flow along the edge, reconfiguring the materiality of the space and producing its unique public character.
