The Best Worst Project


Putu in Pita Pavilion

Inspired by "blob architecture", our pavilion, with its' "basket-like" shape, is a result of our attempt to plan and build a structure which would have a natural rounded shape and curves within our rectangular plot.
Compared to architects who design blob structures using 3D softwares, we have decided to achieve our goal by weaving splitted bamboos. Due to their high tendency to bend, throughout the building process we were uncertain regarding the final form of the structure.
Using weaving as our main construction technique, our pavilion no longer had walls or roof, making the whole structure as a one continuous and firm surface.


Buildable Area: 15 sq.m
Orientation : South- West

Building Process

# 1 Foundations

# 2, 3: Placing the PVC pipes & Planting the vertical splitted bamboos

# 4  Pre-Fabricating the arches

# 5,6,7: Creating the skelton & weaving



Construction Sites in McLeod Ganj & Spontaneous Technology


Derive in the Gandhi Bhawan, Punjab University, Chandigarh

The Gandhi Bhawan is located in the Punjab Uni. campus in Chandigarh, and serves the Gandhian Studies department students.
The building was planned by Pierre Jeanneret, and consists of three major programs: a library, an auditorium and a conference room. 
The building is situated as a monument in the campus, surrounded by a little pond, and seems deserted while no one comes in or out.
While visiting the building, we've noticed it's many private hiding places and therefore decided to play hide and seek during our derive. Some can say that the building's architecture of curved walls and hidden corners doesn't suit Gandhi's outward way of life.
attached a collage out of panoramic photos which we took from our different hiding places.
