A culture rejuvenation center to celebrate the gallantry and valor of Sikhs as a warrior community and the living culture of Punjab.
The idea behind this architectural intervention in the city of Amritsar is to hit the psychological nerve of the people and make them spiritually aware about the rich culture they belong to and rejuvenate the socio-cultural essence of the city and the state. This proposal is foreseen to add to the already booming tourism of the city. It showcases Indian culture, crafts and sports on a global level and exhibits culture of rural India with all its colours and vigour.
Being in the centre of the city, the area has the potential of turning into a landmark, which can connect, visually, to other important tourist spots. At the urban level the goal is to create a permeable urban space that is versatile and democratic in nature. This public space will thereby create a safe, active and entertaining environment; and enhance the area and its surroundings in terms of an active pedestrian friendly zone.
