The Brief of the competition is to design a Meditation and Yoga centre.The aim of the competition is to promote such retreat centers which have now become the need of the hour in today’s world.
The Ethereal Loop offers a plethora of activities and spaces that blend into the rich green scape offered by the Alappuzha Backwater range. The proposal is an attempt to ease the visitor from any kind of burdens and tolls that come from the urban lifestyle. This Retreat Centre pays respect to the locality by acting like a Green intervention bringing us closer to people and nature. Each space forms an individual entity that connects with one of the 5 elements creating sacred experiences. The design is an attempt to establish the relationship between Spirituality and Nature under the guise of Yoga and Meditation. Spiritually, A Circle represents a supernatural notion; ‘The Divine’, that keeps everything transitioning. The form of the design is implanted upon these concentric circles and slender curvatures which unites oneself to Inner Peace and Chakras.
