IIM cafeteria

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Lab. (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

A window in the cafeteria of the Indian Institute of Management, designed in Ahmedabad by Louis Kahn. The large brick arch creates a buffer layer with the large glassless opening on the outside, and sets of tables and chairs are arranged in between them. The brown of the brick and the green of the plants outside create a tasteful contrast.
