Architectural overview

Displayed here is the recent work of the well known French architect Pierre Pichard who has generated detailed maps of Ogyen Choling’s structures. These drawings will be compiled in a book that is slated to be published in 2011. The book will also include personal and academic writing related to Ogyen Choling. This publication is intended to document the typical turn of the century architecture. The narratives of the book will explain how the space was used by those who lived in these buildings. It will also shed some light on how the socio-political changes impacted on the meaning and significance of such buildings in today’s Bhutan.
