Ahmedabad, Gujarat 2010
This installation uses a 2' x 2' ms grid to structure every element of this gathering space. Out of it grow benches, tables, bar, lights, serving counter and shelter. Teakwood strips create the shade, surfaces and seats, while white marble cubes, directed lighting and a glowing floor subtly light the place. The floor is elevated 6 inches and clad with perforated galvanized iron sheets, providing shade to the roof below and a well ventilated, quick-cooling surface for night time events.
The project was also an experiment in remote supervision, designed to detail and conveyed through skype, photos and phone calls, constructed while we traveled.
