At the beginning of the designing process, I came across a picture of Issyk Kurgan, which is an ancient burial mound. Kurgans are mounds of earth & stones raised over graves. Burial mounds are complex structures with internal chambers. This place is derived from a fluid extension of the Land ; growing into grand, curving shapes that envelope one large hill shape roof that covers all the functions. A series of parallel lines begin to circle the hill and create harmonic wavy grooves in it. Day light rays coming inside the Pantheon through these wavy grooves, bring a mystic sensation to the Pantheon .
