Rabong Gompa

Worked on the structure and wall sections for Rabong Gompa during my time at PAN Architecture, Gangtok in Sikkim, India. Major challenges included understanding traditional architecture of buddhist monasteries in the region and incorporating modern materials and traditional features in the new structure. The structure was a part of a larger buddha park being developed in Rabong, the design of which had been commissioned to PAN Architecture. The structure was mainly RCC with chisel dressed stone masonry with plum walls.This project sparked my interest in the region and its culture and led me to do future research and architecture projects in North East of the India.
