Buddhadharma : Winter 2015
winter 2 0 1 5 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly 23 local community together in celebration and remembrance and generating a flood of international media attention. Afterward, the couple donated the projection equipment to Bamiyan so the town can recreate the statues every year. Hopefully, the community center, celebrations, and holo- grams can remind the world that, while nothing can replace a lost cultural landmark, it need not be forgotten. announced the design for a cultural center to be built in the Bamiyan Valley, with a view of the statue sites; the project is expected to take two years to complete. The building will be both a community center and a cultural showcase. Inspired by Bamiyan’s ancient monasteries, the architects designed a building that sinks into the hillside, directing focus toward the empty Buddha caves and creating cool negative space that mimics Bamiyan’s ancient monasteries. In June, the South Asian Association for Regional Coop- eration (SAARC) named Bamiyan its cultural capital for 2015. The announcement kicked off a year of festivals, exhibitions, contests, and shows, all hoped to boost tour- ism and industry. It also came with promises from officials to conserve the Buddha caves and reconstruct other ancient ruins in the area. As part of the SAARC celebrations, two philanthropists, a husband-and-wife team from China, rebuilt the statues— this time, as giant holograms. Using projection technology, they designed the holograms in the mountains in China and secured permission from UNeSCO to install them in Bami- yan. The light statues stood for a weekend, drawing the unesco / m2r arquitectos Exterior and interior (below) renditions of the uNESCo Heritage Site being built in Bamiyan, Afghanistan (Opposite) Holographic projection of the Bamiyan Buddhas
