How does one create an institute of culture and heritage overlooking the Ganges as one is asked to provide privacy and silence to the existing bungalow of the client located towards the edge of the riverbank?

How does one design a structure located on a sloping ground connecting the private house with a floating drive-way?

Obvious answer is to discover new techniques combining random supporting structure for the gateway and evolve a structure overcoming constraints and give the institute the sanctity required.

Efforts culiminated into the form of two footprints slightly apart recalling images of Shiv-Parvati.
