GANDHI DARSHAN

Delhi
1968-1969

This exhibition, organised by the Government of India in 1969 to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, was located directly across the road from the Samadhi at Rajghat where he was cremated.

The complex consisted of four pavilions, each commemorating different aspects of the philosophy and teachings of Gandhiji. Conceived as a series of “non-buildings” party dug into the earth, they were structured by a pedestrian path that moves along a shifting axis, through a series of courtyards.

The brief involved preparing the overall concept and Master Plan for the four pavilions, and detailed architectural drawings for two of them.
