The architecture of OSHO Commune is striking in its subtlety as it integrates into the lush green surrounds. It is the centre from which bhagwan rajneesh (OSHO) Instituted his philosophical teachings upon his return to india. The centre houses a community, consisting of individuals from all over the world in a closely protected environment. OSHO himself is accessible only to a favoured few and intensely protected by his loyal disciples. He was not even able to meet the architect to brief him about his aspirations for the institution. After having rejected several preliminary concepts, OSHO sent his design directives through a thick book with a postage stamp-sized Photograph and a message on a small piece of paper with he phrase - black, Black and black.
