A Modernist Version of the Pagoda

Pagodas have been an icon of the traditional Chinese architecture. Up to this day, very little to no changes have been made to its design, while other architectural styles changed and evolved much over time. A Shanghai-based architect named Amey Kandalgaonkar, creates a fictional re-interpretation of these pagodas.

The designer comments: ‘while the entire world was swept by the modernist movement, china was largely untouched by modernism. so when I visited various ancient chinese monuments, I couldn’t help wonder how a modernist mind would interpret traditional chinese architecture.’

The result is this image. I admit, this really looks incredibly realistic. What are your thoughts on this? Would you want to see a future with this kind of pagoda?
