Architecture Competition: THE LABYRINTH 2.0
Architecture has evolved as much as humans have. Every region and religion has given birth to a different type of architecture. When we talk about Egyptian architecture, the first thing that strikes our mind is a pyramid. Similarly, Parthenon is such a good example of Greek Architecture. In history, architecture is one of the major ways to understand the timeline and to distinguish between the lifestyles of people.
Not only monuments, but Every era also had different types of architectural elements. For instance, Greek architecture had Greek columns (doric, ionic, etc.), Islamic architecture had minarets, Byzantine architecture had waffled domes, Chinese architecture had pagodas, etc. These elements were the major distinguishing among all forms of architecture.
But what if all these elements are integrated in one building, flooding it with the rich culture and heritage of human settlements.The sight of awe when you can see different architectural forms combined to form a space. That too, a labyrinth!
