Reversed ruins

These photographs arrest this series of structures at a very interesting point in their development. They feel like a wonderful fusion of the Janta Manta structures in Delhi and Jaipur fused with unbuilt Louis Khan. Hugely sculptural, sensuous and responsive to their location, one wishes they might be left in their current state as a sublime folly. This does raise the question : how many other architectural projects exhibit this brief splendor at some point before completion. It will be fascinating to see whether the finished structure retains the qualities Bennetts has so beautifully captured here.
