INDIA PAVILION

Osaka, Japan
1969, Unbuilt

This project is a further development of the themes of the Handloom and Hindustan Lever Pavilions. Here the maze is extended to cover the roof – surfaces as well – so that one enters and goes into, through, and over and out of a large puzzle-box.

The architectural form is deliberately low-key, a “non-building” given scale principally by the flights of stairs (echoing the bathing ghats of the rivers of India) and the effigy of the mythological demon Ravana.
