Lotus Temple in New Delhi

by s.Divakar
(Bangalore, India)

Lotus Temple. A few years ago I had been to the Bahai Lotus Temple at Delhi. The structure built in 1986 is a Lotus shaped structure . Inner dome has diameter of 30 m and outer dome has dia of 50m. It is a structure with a geometry of shapes like spheres,cylinders, torroids, cones. All around the Lotus are walkways with beautiful curved balustrades. Bridges and stairs which surround nine pools represent floating leaves of the Lotus. All petals of lotus are made up of thin concrete shells with 100 to 250 mm thickness.The structure is defined by equations of various geometric surfaces and their intersections. The formwork was supported on a special designed steel staging, a space frame with radial and circumferential members. Galvanised reinforcement was used to prevent rusting. The petals of the Lotus are in white concrete and the exterior is cladded with white marble panels.
