The Sanskar Kendra Museum was designed by Le Corbusier as a closed box elevated from the ground. On the roof is a pool that can be filled with water on a hot day. Le Corbusier imagined a poetic experiment: flowers and plants would be put directly on the water. Then the water would be treated with fertilizer to enhance the unnatural growth of giant flowers, tomatoes and pumpkins. In the evening, visitors would wander around the artificial roof landscape. Of course none of this became reality. Nevertheless, the cool, dark exhibition spaces are worth a visit on a hot day. This project is part of the Architecture Reading Aid Ahmedabad (Ruby Press, 2015). © ARA (Fanelsa, Franke, Helten, Martenson, Wertgen)
