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 form has metamorphosed due to the long narrow site, and because of the structural system used: random-folded RCC plates, gunited in-situ, encasing ramps and platforms below and creating huge "cannons" which set up convection currents of air through the fractured, scaleless spaces.
