Info

Jawahar kala kendra is a living personification of ideas of three geniuses Maharaja Jai Singh, Jawahar Lal Nehru and its creator Charles Correa. The centre is a metaphorical replication of the basic plan of city Jaipur drawn up by Maharaja Jai Singh. It is dedicated to the great Indian leader Jawahar Lal Nehru. The concept of ancient Vedic mandala of nine squares or houses representing nine planets for the centre was conceived in the mind of Charles Correa.

Correa’s plan directly invokes the original navagraha or the nine house mandala. One of the squares is pivoted to recall the original city plan and also to create the grand entrance. The squares are surrounded by eight metre high walls, symbolizing the fortification wall along the Jaipur old city. Correa amazingly portrayed the city Jaipur as a brand through the centre not only by form but also by using pink colored interiors, the soul character of the city.

The building is composed of eight separate Squares. Each block is based on the parable associated with that particular planet: the Library is positioned in the square of planet Mercury which is a symbol of knowledge and theaters are placed in the house of Venus which represents art. The central square is a void as per the vedic shastras representing nothing which is everything.

The centre is a beautiful amalgamation of contemporary and traditional architecture of India. Modern grid like structure containing ancient vedic concepts of mandala depicts the alluring idea of fusion. Architect has successfully played with the lights, shadows and colors thus evoking the emotions of the user and raising the curiosity to move further and explore more.

The architects concern for the progression of spaces is reflected by the means of skillful interweaving solids and voids through courtyards, corridors and level differences. Landscaping and lights are artfully used to accomplish the integration of indoors with outdoors.

The centre is not just a building rather it’s an emotional expression of the city Jaipur connecting people spiritually through their royal culture. A place worth visiting using VR to experience that connect at the soul level.
