The practice has built several fun structures in steel pipes and cables for marriage marquees, pavilions, temporary concert stages etc. Largely these are temporary structures in which we have used various forms such as parabolic and hypar to explore the tensile properties of steel cables and the compressive efficiencies of steel pipes. Some of the structures are over large assembly areas. The space frame over Rajkot Swaminarayan Temple prayer hall spans clear 40m x 65m.

The individual buildings vary from 2 to 7 storeys, stepped to suit the undulating site, and interconnected with link paths. Confined fly ash masonry load-bearing structures with hollow slabs, where the spans were high, were specially developed for this project to manage the scales, heights and the earthquake requirements consistent with the environmental concerns.
