The 2016 pavilion designed by Studio Mumbai is a 12 meter-high structure conceived as a large gathering space and ideally aimed to connect ground, sky, and earth. The structure is made of bamboo, assembled by using traditional, orally-transmitted Indian techniques. It is composed of a basic scaffolding-like structure, with poles and braces composed of bamboo canes and simply tied to one another through friction-tight rope connections. This building, also, aims to be a "universal" one, a symbolic work that represents the relationship between man and nature, rather than to be strictly specific to the place where it is physically located.
