Here are some sketches for the temporary structure that Wahid Seraj had designed early this year when the idea for this project came up. It embodies the spirit of this project in that it's Wahid's hands-on proactive and spontaneous response to the need of the hour - a space for artists to meet, collaborate and share their work with the public. This is one of a 100 different ways that this space can be imagined. So get to your drafting table right away and come up with a design that you would want to share with us!

What is 501(c)?
501(c) is a provision of the United States Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. § 501(c)), listing 26 types of non-profit organizations exempt from some federal income taxes. Sections 503 through 505 list the requirements for attaining such exemptions. Many states reference Section 501(c) for definitions of organizations exempt from state taxation as well.
//NOTE: We are looking for organizational and financial partners who would help us with this experiment. If you are an organisation with deep roots in the art-design-architecture areas, and are FCRA listed, please do get in touch with me at arcna[at]hotmail.com. //
