Khushi Loonia



The project explores the experience of the basilica through its experience of scale and volume through its movement. It tries to simplify the elements of Baroque present which stand as key memories of the space such as its ornamentation of doorways, the shift of volumes with openness and enclosure and tries to utilize or experience the existing inaccessed spaces such as the courtyard or the bell tower.
