In Search of the Female Goddess

If architecture affects ideas, values and socio-economic dynamics, then the Architect, being true to his calling, is on an eternal quest to go beyond the design program and understand the larger picture that is life itself, and all that encompasses it.

As we prepare to visit the Meenakshi Temple next month, we attempt to study the aspect of the female goddess across antiquity and over pre-historic civilizations, and how India remains the sole country where the female Goddess is still revered and prayed to everyday.

We introduce the topic in a presentation that hopes to create a window of awareness towards the aspect of female divinity and energy. What this means for society, humanity and architecture, and how and if these are connected is a journey for each one of us to discover.
