The Monsoon unfolds as an expedition into chaos, genesis, and devotion in a realm of faithful inhabitants. It ventures into a landscape where the forces of nature, scientific inquiry, religious convictions, and marvel unite in one of the planet's most awe–inspiring and stunning terrains. This is a non–linear process where natural cycles never stop happening, interfering with human processes of space production. This research is part of the development of the Indian Beach Houses project.
