Subodh Gupta

Subodh Gupta's studio’s main entrance, Gurgaon, India, 2014(?).

When Gupta was confronted by ambitious early designs for the studio by his friend, Mumbai architect Rajiv Saini, he was left wondering where he would find room to pursue his practice within its dynamic sculptural form. Architect and client came to an understanding—the facade would remain unchanged, but a simple, functional workspace would be created within. “Inside, the studio was the way I wanted it; outside was the way he wanted it,” Gupta recalls. And, on closer inspection, it’s apparent that the bulging exterior of faceted concrete peels apart at the edges to expose a functional box of brick and frosted glass behind.
