A Pavilion for Water

In everyday life we often come across places we feel are devoid of life. This project was aimed at enriching the life of one such place in Kharagpur, West Bengal by making a water pavilion. A water pavilion with two halves - one which is more open and free - the structure which invites people onto the site. The second pavilion which is accessed around a water tank, with its corbelled brick columns giving playful edges for the rainwater to drip down, becomes a more introverted space with its heavy shade and becomes the guardian of the water stored within.
