India Architecture News - Dec 16, 2020 - 16:21   6224 views

International competition:

Life as humans are transient and momentary in the Cosmos. To be human is to know that you are not forever and with this idea lies a hope that our lives extend beyond the grave. The belief in afterlife runs psychologically deep and it is a reflection of an idea that our mind, our memories, our emotions, our desires are distinct and separate from our physical existence and stems from a longing that we exist perhaps even as immaterial souls.

The idea proposes an imaginative typology of a terminal space that permits the transfer of souls to either heaven or hell. The design concept explores various different theories of philosophy and expresses it through proposing a creation of an imaginative typology for all belief systems that serves as an arrival space for all souls before they embark on their journey of afterlife.  

The competition is giving away a cash prize of 2000$ + publications on International platforms.
