DESCRIPTION:

Last April 25, 2015 earthquake, which hit Nepal and deeply Kathmandu, was nothing new for us because part of the purpose of this project was focused on structural anti-seismic study which in the past had suffered from a similar event in 1934. Now, was no exception.​

​Reconstruction and adaptation of the largest temple in the Teku Thapathali complex, to accommodate disadvantaged Kathmandu children's.


The construction techniques have been extensively studied and applied in-depth in the project aiming to protect the identity and originality, recovering and improving the existing, and completing what has long deteriorated and collapsed.


The Sattal´s rooftop, constituted by three layers covering, with copper-golden roofs, crowned with fanciful golden "gajur", gives an overview to the public, highlighting the richness of this religious extensive area along the Bagmati River.
