The project is based in Pascal Maidan, a playground which for decades has been a battlefield between the Hindu and Muslim community, during Riots. The project conceives a civic centre, which could heal the sufferings of the community and initiate regeneration. This community driven initiation consists of a local police station, a socio-cultural centre and recreational facilities related with the Maidan. Currently the landscape slopes down towards the playground by 4.5 m, the built form is housed in this sloping terrain. The architecture is choreographed through sectional strategy enabling different relationships with the playground. The landscape flows through the building and creates fluid relationships with the surrounding fabric and the Maidan.
