Satara Municipal Corporation | Competition

Contemporary | Facade

The Satara Municipal Council intends to be a forward-looking urban administration that dreams of leadership from both the top-down and bottom-up approach. The building should symbolize the ethos of it’s policies and stand as a flag bearer in both administrative and architectural practice. In the essence of such a building should lie the sense of ownership and accessibility by its citizens, to address issues of civic responsibility and urban human rights. Democracy is best reflected when the civic institutions create a semblance of openness, transparency and pride of local culture and history. It needs to serve as a bridge between yesterday, today and tomorrow, binding technology and tradition, connecting the public to the policy-makers, like a symbol of a horizon that connects the bountiful earth to the providential sky.
