How is the motion of a holy river translated to steel?

This is a story from Nanded, a quaint township on the banks of River Godavari. Historically significant for its 12 Sikh Gurudwaras, the gentle streams of the river inspired the design of this Jaali.

Made exclusively for the Joshi House, Breathing Skin is a deconstructive installation / object. Responding to the brief's requirement of a dynamic facade, it blends humbly into the neighbourhood's fabric while doubling down as a spectacular backdrop up-close and inside.
Expressed in neat lines, it behaves as a flowing landscape transposed vertically, leading our collective vision to an open sky.
