through necessity or expediency. These factors have either been ignored or have
only been considered in a haphazard and piecemeal manner for too long and,
thus, they have had no perceptible impact on the profession to date. – Ashish Ganju, A.G.K. Menon

Tulum – Jungle Rooftop Restaurant, at Chandigarh, by Loop Design Studio

Tulum is an experimental paradox in the brutalist context of Chandigarh. It is a rooftop restaurant that offers panoramic views of the city skyline. Drawing its inspiration from the Mexican getaway destination by the same name, Tulum is curated as a superfluous, green and vernacular oasis.
