IGNCA, MATI GHAR, NEW DELHI

Capturing the concept of time in all aspects of design and construction, the Mati Ghar is directed, not by engineering, construction or aesthetic guidelines alone but is meant to instigate the harmonious design thought of an endless space and the "cosmic dimension of a temporal reality". It is composed as three concentric rings, their radii in the proportion of 1:2:3, and with the radial division of the outermost, middle & innermost ring into twelve, twenty four and thirty six equal divisions respectively. Adjacent to the structure is an open air amphitheatre, an exact replica of the building footprint, thus representing a version of the structure over time
