A landmark for town of Anjar, Bhuj, Gujarat, India. The original structure had collapsed during the devastating earthquake of 2001. The buildings were engineered to perform better under such recurrences, which we hope the town has to never experience again.
The architecture is sensitive to local heritage and sentiments and the structure is engineered to be able better receive forces of man and nature.
