The whimsical and engaging animal print building in Kanpur, India (also referred to as 'The Pink Zebra'), explores historic relevancies and architectural design both from artistic and academic points of view. Renesa Architecture Design Interiors combine the "extravagance of European Grandeur" with the history of Kanpur, previously Cawnpore.
The animal print building is an overwhelming representation of artistic notions through the inherent ambiguity of both traditional and modern experiences, as well as the overall "quirkiness of Art Nouveau glitz."
The Pink Zebra constitutes a self-contained environment with a distinctly surreal and otherworldly aesthetic that can foster distinct personal experiences. Valuing interdisciplinary intersection and an amalgam of design theories, the animal print building by Renesa Architecture Design Interiors successfully creates its own narrative within the city of Kanpur.
