A Pavilion Near the Banyan Tree - Dance Studio

The site is located within the dense greenery of Kamatibaug, Vadodara. The Pavilion, which serves as a Dance Studio is situated near the Banyan Tree. The structure shows bulges in the beam grid which gradually increases towards the side facing the Banyan Tree. The spaces formed within these bulges are the 'release spaces' (informal) from where the grid starts to bifurcate so that the structure can become less rigid and also merge with the surrounding environment without disturbing it. These bifurcations leads to spaces which are more formal. Several experiences are created inside the pavilion by the play of levels.
