Hollow steel pipes, 2064 of them, each of a diameter that is about 0.32% of the overall width of the sculpture, makes up the structural skeleton. The needle-like relative proportion gives the dense steel framework a sense of lightness while exploiting the tensile properties of steel. The heat generated on account of the steel tubes being exposed to the sun is absorbed by the heatcrete filled within their hollow cores which collectively form a Thermal Energy Storage System. Heatcrete is a concrete-like energy storage material and also helps improve the compressive properties where required.The steelwork provides a frame and reference to which the panels are fixed. While the material of the panels could vary and adapt to different contexts and environments, they are responsible for providing the final flourish and would need to be determined with care. A generic material that should work adequately is architectural fabric. However if it were to be contextual to a culture or region, it could also be woven bamboo in Nagaland, sandstone in Rajasthan, coconut fiber in Kerala and so on. Basically any material that adequately bridges the reference provided by the projecting steel tubes to form surfaces from which the form of India emerges. The base steel framework, like India, is consistent, the constituents are dynamic and can be contextual.
