And the structures rise from the sand cliffs — they're biult in concrete and sandstones; the rfoos are stainless steel — they are facing south and reflecting light towards the temple itself, pedestrians crisscross from one side to the other. And as you come from the north, it is all masonry growing out of the sand cliffs as you come from the Himalayas and evoking the tradition of the fortress.

Original Text

And my proposal was to split the museum into two — the permanent exhibits at one end, the auditorium, library, and changing exhibitions on the other — to flood the valley into a series of water gardens and to link it all to the fort and to the downtown. And the structures rise from the sand cliffs — they're built in concrete and sandstones; the roofs are stainless steel — they are facing south and reflecting light towards the temple itself, pedestrians crisscross from one side to the other. And as you come from the north, it is all masonry growing out of the sand cliffs as you come from the Himalayas and evoking the tradition of the fortress.
