5th year university project

The Spiritual Guild : The project proposes the migration of contemporary stone carving guilds of Jaipur, to Makrana, where white marble has been quarried for centuries creating a landscape of gigantic proportions. These craftsmen will inhabit self-built shafts that rise from the depths of the quarry attempting to link the liberated with the non-liberated along the cosmic axis. The stone carving workshops will be located along this axis, creating sacred ornaments, mini temples capable of provoking thoughts of liberation or moksha.
