introduction
The pavilion through its making emanates the language of working with the material to arrive at various building systems in an architectural form. Walls, flooring, spanning, structural, and bearing systems are all indigenously calibrated, composed, and conceived using various forms and species of Bamboo. Interestingly worn-out bricks are employed and reimagined to arrive at playful plinths and steps thereby negotiating the existing terrain and creating a set of volumes that offer multiplicities towards its usage, allowing intersection of various activities.

materials and building techniques
It is an articulated form in a material through a set of joineries while further clarifying to the sequence of construction immensely involved in the process of making using various forms of Bamboo. The pavilion is an exploratory ground to construct dynamics of making in stipulated time. It is a platform to understand bamboo as a material and the ways in which it can be employed in building architecture through details and fabrication of components coming together in an assembly.
