Meshi Bamboo | Treated on site with Linseed oil & Blow torch | 18' X 18' X 18'
No skilled labour, only skilled students!!!
Over the new year's evening of 2016, our founder - Ar. Rohan Nahar along with VIT's Padmabhushan Dr. Vasanatdada Patil college of Architecture (PVPCOA), Pune designed and built this pavilion for the Pune Biennale 2016 who invited the students of PVPCOA to build and execute this.
Initially the biennale Foundation kept changing venue for this pavilion but once it was built, it was used as a centre-stage for the entire event and most of their addresses and functions happened underneath this pavilion.
The Pavilion is based on the designs of the French Architect Yona Friedman and he too sent his regards to the Biennale foundation and complimented on raising this. BJP Politician Shri. Girish Bapat also visited this site to encourage the students. Many artists, architects, academicians and citizens of Pune and Mumbai came to witness this. We would like to express our gratitude to Pune Biennale Foundation, VIT's PVPCOA
