Location: Delhi, India

Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Project Duration: 1968 - 1969

This exhibition, organised by the Govemment 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" partly 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.
