Along with being a rich network of culture and heritage, India is the world’s largest democracy and the fastest developing country in the 21st century. Its cities are dense landscapes of structures, with a majority of upcoming constructions largely relying on one primary building material:concrete.
Contrary to the predominant use of concrete in recent constructions, the traditional rural landscape of India’s architecture is a diverse exploration of materials and building techniques. It really makes us wonder what the architectural landscape of the cities will look like by the end of 2050. Are there other alternatives we can begin to explore that might be more economical, durable, and environment-friendly than concrete? Is there a possibility to use modern building techniques with locally-sourced or sustainable materials?
Thus, the competition aims to design a striking and thought-provoking pavilion to start a nationwide dialogue on the urgency to explore sustainable building materials. The competition gives participants the opportunity to use architectural design of the pavilion to create awareness and action around this pressing challenge. The design of the pavilion seeks to be expressive, exciting and powerful to make people think about the existing and future realities of cities.
