Situated in the heart of the open spaces of the lake in Kankaria, the hexagonal maze will be an aesthetic addition to the rich architectural heritage of Ahmedabad and a recreational delight for the ‘tourist’.
The walls of the maze, inspired by the Jalis (windows) of the Islamic monuments of Old Ahmedabad and made of terracota clay, imbibe the ‘old’ in the ‘new’. The star and flower perforations give the walled structure a unique visual appeal from outside. Light and other elements of nature enter and co-habitat with the structure in an unpredictable manner enhancing the experience and interaction for the ‘tourist’ within the walls. They also provide a glimpse of what is further inside, adding to the curiosity of the ‘tourist’.
