The degradation movement in architecture upholds the bio-logic , the logic for a degradable need. During major events like Olympics, National games, Biennale etc. multiple structures are erected, making use of heavy construction material.

This approach makes demolition and disposal difficult and more often these structures are abandoned, as lonely temples at the sites. These structures are erected as a sign of the prosperity and wealth of the nation, but the cites pay the price unconsciously. This burning desire of architecture rapes the city and leaves behind ghost towns that take decades to metabolize.

This pavilion is a building, which grows after its birth and die once the purpose is served. All that remains is the experience felt under it.
