ORIENT HORIZON RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBOURHOOD

Aesthetics of incomplete has often been celebrated throughout Asian subcontinent at times through meditative approaches of Wabi-Sabi and at times through comprehensive list of expressions defined by Rasas . Conceptually it was an exercise in finding contemporary expression for time tested and celebrated spaces that responded not only to the cities and immediate context but also to absence and wilderness within manicured morphologies. Structures like Pavilions and Jarokhas have been long part of building traditions and often acted as a window to the city.

The main question we asked was when we are building tall structures can we reconstitute the way they respond to the city.

The Earth – the imperfect 

Without a speck of dust being raised,
the mountains tower up,
without a single drop falling,
the streams plunge into the valley.
– An Ode to the Dry Landscape by Muso Soseki (1275-1351)

The Sky – the impermanence
