Forest Conservatory

The project is set in the idea of meshwork, as discussed by Manuel deLanda. It investigates the elements and forces involved in the complex network of life cycles in the Champaner site. The region has an endogenous ability to regenerate life periodically. 
The architectural project intends to provide for the study and research of this meshwork. It also harnesses the hygroscopic abilities of wood veneers on the conservatory skin. Thereby, the project comes to life in continually responding to the climatic conditions. The super-structure as well as an aqueduct support in channeling the water  to the pool inside the conservatory.
