Exploring Publicness | Architectural Design 05 – Modern Mantapa
Studio Mentor: Shreyas Baindur
A mantapa or a pavilion is one of the thematic spaces found in Indian architecture that was explored to understand the idea of publicness. In this studio, we explored the idea of a “modern mantapa” which would fit into the rich historical, cultural and religious context of Srirangapatna. The functionality of the mantapa was open to interpretation but also had to house a few public programs.
