HINDUSTAN LEVER PAVILION

Delhi
1961

The industrial fairs held annually in Delhi provided an extraordinary opportunity for architects to experiment..

This is a variation of the earlier Handloom Pavilion.

The circulation pattern is similar, but the forma has metamorphosed due to the long narrow site, and because of the structural system used: random-folded RCC plates, united in-situ, encasing ramps and platforms below-and creating huge ‘’cannons’’ which set up convection currents of air through the fractured, scaleless spaces.
