Jakob + Macfarlane have donated Monument, a signed, limited edition (4/15) digital print, depicting their Monument in Mumbai (competition Finalist, 2014). The project is dedicated to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, lawyer, politician leader of the “untouchables,” and principal author of the Constitution of India, on an old historical site on the edge of the Arabian Sea in Mumbai.

 

The concept “proposes to take the life story of Dr. Ambedkar and divide it into episodes of his life and that of India—to make these into fragments or pieces of buildings that ultimately culminate in a primary monument: the Assembly Hall, a building that represents the birth and death of this emblematic figure. Each of these architectural fragments are geometrically based on the circle or sphere.”

 

Jakob + Macfarlane is a multidisciplinary architecture agency based in Paris. The firm was founded by Dominique Jakob and Brendan MacFarlane. To date, main projects include the Restaurant Georges Pompidou Centre (2000), the library Florence Loewy Books by Artists in Paris (2001 ), Ricard Foundation for Contemporary Art (2007), the Orange Cube and RBC showroom in Lyon (2010), the FRAC Centre in Orléans (2013), and Euronews global headquarters of the European information TV channel in Lyon (2014). Recent projects are a 50-meter multi-program tower of municipal and childhood equipment with social housing "Community House" in the city center of Knokke-Heist in Belgium, the school of architecture and urbanism (FA+U) of the city of Mons in Belgium. Lately, they are laureate of two C40 Reinventing Cities competition in Reykjavik and Paris.

 

The firm’s projects have been exhibited in museums around the world, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum (London, 2003), SFMOMA (San Francisco, 2004), the Museum of Architecture (Moscow, 2000), Artist Space (New York, 2003), Carnegie Mellon (USA, 2001), Mori Art Museum (Tokyo, 2004), the Centre Pompidou, and others.
