The symmetrical and dynamic roof over a stepped passage was a three-level concave structure with mild steel supports and a transparent polycarbonate sheet as the roof cover. The curvature and slope of the roofs were determined to create enough gaps in between them for free air flow yet simultaneously avoiding rain water flow inside. The parapet is shaped in the form of fire with respective colored mosaic dado, symbolizing Agni- ‘the purifying God of Fire’.
