Svabhava Contemplation Centre

Best Project of Public Space by Student

About the project
The World has become too complex, pulling our attention in multiple directions at all times. The Contemplation Center is a refuge from overstimulation, it is a place to unplug, focus, and find peace. Therefore, it is necessary to have a place that can at least help healing by presenting a meditation room (tranquillity in the middle of the city). There is no single way to meditate. Some meditate with a soft focus on their environment; some, with tight focus on a particular object. Some meditate by focusing out to the world; some, by focusing on the self. Some focus in sounds; some on silence. The Contemplation Centre provides a variety of spaces and stimuli to guests to help them connect to the physical and metaphysical.
