Matrimandir Sign Boards

On the occasion of Auroville’s 50th anniversary, we have been asked to create new sign boards for the Matrimandir—daily, thousands of visitors come to admire this unique architectural masterpiece. The icons had to be very clear and understandable by any nationality. We came up with two types of sign board: one in sand stone which is placed on the ground and one movable pole implanted in a granite base. Another challenge was to include 4 languages (English, French, Tamil, and Hindi). We created these icons in collaboration with designer Christilla Lostis; photos were taken by Dasha Iatsenko.
