architecture in india surveys the contemporary condition of the country’s built environment, showcasing a range of innovative projects and the diverse materials and unconventional forms employed in their construction. temporary pavilions are free-standing subsidiary buildings and schemes that are either positioned separately or as an attachment to a main building. situated on the lawn of the CEPT university campus in ahmedabad, india, WEsearch lab has built a temporary structure that explores a labor intensive, low-cost type of architecture in south-east asian countries. dubbed the ‘wormhole’ installation, the project has been developed with a budget of just 200 usd, using inexpensive building materials. developing south-east asian countries typically don’t have access to cheap or large scale 3-axial 3D printing, 5-axial robot assisted printing, double-curved metal bending or robot assisted assembly infrastructure. on the other hand, they have an abundance of cheap manual labor, and readily available and cheap planar fabrication techniques. to minimize inflation of cost, free-form shapes need to be rationalized into planar parts which can then be fabricated using laser cutting o...
