Gandhi Park is a unique park designed as a tribute to the father of the nation in the heart of the new capital city Amaravati as the Government wanted to offer its architectural reverence and homage to a great soul. The first of its kind In India, the park picturises the entire life of Gandhiji spanning from boyhood till the time of his demise.
A homogeneous mould of history that culminates with the futuristic tomorrow. Adorned by the warm mystic and captivating murals that present a panoramic view of the Freedom Struggle. Taking a cue from the ancient times, where architecture celebrated light and its cyclical periodicity to commemorate monumental architectures like Stonehenge, Mayan Pyramids, etc., the present concept spatially spreads itself between 2nd Oct and 30th Jan, letting the sun mark the precinct of experience according to the birth and demise time. Using the spinning wheel as an integrating tool which brings all the spokes to the centre, the design idea symbolically integrates the spatial experience on the periphery to the centre as a monumental column of 78 ft. tall (Gandhiji’s age at the time of demise).
