The Common Wealth Trust Ltd or locally referred to as Basel Mission tile factory run by the German missionary Plebot (Georg Plebst in reality), was the first Mangalore tile manufacturing factory to be set up in India in 1860 on banks of the Nethravathi river near Morgan's Gate,about 10 kilometres from the Ullal bridge, Mangalore, Karnataka.

Since that time, the industry has flourished in India with these red tiles, prepared from hard laterite clay, in great demand throughout the country. They are exported to Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and the Far East and even as far as East Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Australia.These were the only tiles recommended for government buildings in India under the British Raj.
Also famously known as mangalore tiles due to its ancient origin.

Padmashri Sunita Kohli Mam became an interior designer long ago before the profession became famous. Considered amongst the top designers in India, she is also amongst the first interior designer the country ever had.
A few of her projects include restoration and redecoration of numerous British Raj period buildings in New Delhi, mainly designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, Sir Robert Tor Russell and Sir Herbert Baker, including Rashtrapati Bhawan (formerly Viceroy's House), the Prime Minister's Office, Parliament House and Hyderabad House.

In 2005, Sunita Kohli was instrumental in the conceptualisation and founding of the 'Museum of Women in the Arts,India' (MOWA, INDIA). Within MOWA, an NGO is being established for the empowerment of rural master craftswomen. She has been on the National Advisory Board of the 'National Museum of Women in the Arts', Washington DC.
We wish her good health & much more success in future.

Dr Balkrishna Vithaldas Doshi is considered as the father of Indian architecture.

In the year 2018, he became the only Indian architect awarded with the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize.
His more noteworthy designs include the IIM Bangalore, IIM Udaipur, NIFT Delhi, Amdavad ni Gufa, CEPT University, and the Aranya Low Cost Housing development in Indore which was awarded the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

His studio, Vastu-Shilpa (environmental design), was established in 1955. Doshi worked closely with Louis Kahn and Anant Raje, when Kahn designed the campus of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. In 1958 he was a fellow at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. He then started the School of Architecture (S.A) in 1962.

Dr Doshi says that he has been inspired by historic Indian monuments, as well as the work of European and American architects.

At the eastern end of the vast Tibetan Plateau is the landmark monastery town Larung Gar, the largest Tibetan Buddhist institute in the world. This cultural, historical and religious site’s inhabitants and buildings currently face threat of forced migration and demolition, and unless the international community acts quickly this beautiful Tibetan village will soon be no more.

Rajasthan, the name brings to mind multiple images – colourful turbans, delectable food, warm people, royal palaces and grand forts welcome you wherever you go. The majestic forts of this enchanting state are the truest symbol of its glorious past. They are not just sagas in stone but also a testament to the valour and indomitable spirit of the Rajputs, the mighty warrior clan. But if there is one fort that personifies the spirit and grandeur of Rajasthan more than anyone else, it is the impressive and inspiring Kumbhalgarh fort in Rajsamand district.
It was Maharana Kumbha who undertook the construction of this architectural marvel in the 15th century, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The profession of interior design is just over 100 years old. In these hundred years, what began as the art of decorating, embracing form and function, has evolved by leaps and bounds into today’s world of highly specialized areas of interior design that require years of study and experience.

In the early 1900’s, the term “Interior Decorator” was first used in America. Most decorators at the time had no academic credentials, but the best of them had a combination of good taste, common senses, and natural talent to interpret and address the issues, such as scale and proportion. Elsie de Wolfe became the first Interior Decorator to be given a design “commission.” In 1913, Elsie de Wolfe published the first interior design book, “The House in Good Taste.” Dorothy Draper was the first documented commercial Interior Decorator, establishing her design firm in 1923.

The term “Interior Designer” was coined in the 1930’s, by a magazine called “Interior Design and Decoration.” That magazine was not printed between 1943 and 1952, but a competing magazine, “Interiors,” insisted on using only the term “interior designer,” not “decorator.” At this time design schools also recognized the work not only of designers but also of architects and engineers. “Interiors” published more contract work than residential work. When “Interior Design and Decoration” magazine resumed publication, it dropped the term “and Decoration” from its name.

The largest professional organization in the field at the time, AID, was founded in 1931 when a group meeting convened at a furniture show determined to create a national professional organization. AID changed its name from the American Institute of Decorators to the American Institute of Interior Designers (AID) in 1936. Over the years, as the profession of interior design grew, so did the number of organizations and associations to represent the varied professional members.

In the 1970’s both The Foundation for Interior Design Educational Research (FIDER) and National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) were formed to establish, maintain and govern standards for the education and examination of interior design professionals.
