Mumbai, considered rightfully the city of dreams, has a landscape that boasts of people from all walks of life, and architectural styles that transcend several eras. Today, Mumbai is a melting pot of lifestyles. It soaks everything in its fabric and makes it its own.
Such is its recognition, that people within India itself, as well as all over the world, take Mumbai to be the symbol of India. The Gateway of India precinct is one of the oldest and most popular tourist friendly areas of not just the city, but also of the nation. The precinct hosts an array of various hotels, art galleries, historic buildings and other businesses that cater to visitors from within and outside the city.
As a result, it has become the hub of tourist activity with a variety of landmarks, heritage buildings and a vital street life. Apart from being an attractive destination point for tourists, the precinct has a strong, poignant history which resulted in it being the prominent locale that it is today.
Events that have time and again tested the city’s resilience and fighting spirit are studded in its history and come to mind, when we think of Mumbai. The attacks of 26/11, hit the nation in shockwaves so strong, that it broke the city’s spirit for several months to come. An attack of such an intense magnitude wrenched through the heart of every Indian, broke the homes of the people involved, and left a stain in the timeline of our country.
The main purpose of the competition is to design a temporary pavilion that holds the virtues of peace and amity in its essence, built in honor of the several valiant soldiers who lost their lives fighting the corrupt ideas of terrorism. The pavilion should be temporary in nature, constructed in a way that responds to its environment in an eco-friendly way.
