It was an attempt to showcase history and architectural heritage of Ahmednagar city in Maharashtra India, through a temporary Pavilion.
Pavilion was filled with different dramatic moods to have an endless dialogue over history and architecture which is in neglected condition in today. Paper tubes were consciously placed to create a new dialogue through “Light and Shadows” between “Heritage and Citizens”. In the pavilion, tubes were placed in such way that it gave the glimpse of inside display of heritage and architecture of Ahmednagar and also acted as a driving factor towards the exhibition area. Roof gave a feeling of shamiyana which allowed light to play inside in the pavilion.
