The design concept for the Dhun project is based on the sacred Lotus flower, which closes at night, submerges in water and opens in the morning. The Lotus is the ultimate symbol of creativity and beauty triumphing over darkness—the overriding theme of the Dhun project. The newly designed spaces in the existing building, the Imaginarium, reference the curved shapes of the Lotus petals.
