A Celestial Outdoor Canopy by Abin Design Studio Encourages an Upward Perspective
Atop an office building in Eastern India, a celestial outdoor canopy by Abin Design Studio encourages an upward perspective. Over three years of development, 26 architects, designers, engineers, and fabricators led by Abin Design Studio founder and principal Abin Chaudhuri assembled the rooftop installation, which is made up of 752 spheres, each 1-3 feet in diameter. The spheres are supported by 11 structural columns, each 15 feet high.
