Built for a religious festival of a tribal community west of Kolkata, the concept was to celebrate tribal life, rituals and the symbiotic relationship with the forest. The experience abstracted the journey through a forest of canopies and find divinity. Since the site is surrounded by greenery, the design reflects this contextual characteristic.
Indian temples are classic examples of devotional community spaces. The conceptualization of the Pavilion of Canopies is a contemporary attempt at re-imagining this tradition.
